This week Scott Acton, CEO of Forte Specialty Contractors joins me on the show to share their story as a company serving the hospitality, restaurant, nightlife, and entertainment industries. 

Scott's entrance into this arena began with a long family history of Disney projects, which is known for creative, unusual experiences requiring innovative construction techniques.

Part of developing this skill set for Scott included attending “Disney University” where he learned the business and leadership skills necessary to build a successful career.

His early work comprises several landmarks across North America, including portions of Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios, and Disney, showcasing Scott’s affinity to thematic design and construction.

Scott continues his legacy of innovation as the CEO of Forté and on this episode, you hear him share how they've expanded as a company to the point where they now use 3D printing to produce mockups of projects for their clients and subcontractors. They boast the largest 3D printer of-its-kind in the state of Nevada.
