Scott Rutherford

Scott Rutherford, a Mobius Principal, is a Management Consultant, Executive and Team Counselor that specializes in shifting mindsets and behaviours to drive organizational strategy. Working with both corporations and NGOs, Scott is most skilled and passionate about leveraging the realization of organizational and personal outcomes to
create value, meaning and social change.

Scott has over twenty years of experience leading and working with major corporations in several countries. From an engineer for a Japanese trading company in the early 90’s to the first foreign-born VP of that same company five years later, as well as President of its Canadian subsidiary, Scott subsequently moved into strategic consulting, first for his own firm NIKA Canada, and then with McKinsey & Company as an Expert in Organization
and Leadership. He is currently a Desautels Centre for Integrative Thinking lecturer at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.

Since 2005, Scott has continued to work with McKinsey, and other global corporations, at the same time increasing the share of time he devotes to distinctive socially-conscious organizations such as The Aga Khan Foundation, Engineers Without Borders, Roots of Empathy, Project Tribute – 9/11 Families Association among others. In all cases, Scott’s practice focuses on engineering and choreographing a suite of strategic and cultural interventions that fundamentally transform the ways of thinking and acting within organizations and teams – visibly instantiating profound and meaningful change.

Scott holds an MBA from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management as well as an Engineering degree from Queen’s University. Much of his work is done out of In Wood Farm, a deep retreat centre he has developed near Algonquin Park in Ontario Canada.
