As a leading African-American lifestyle publication, each year Savoy Magazine publishes a list of Top 100 honorees who have exhibited exemplary professional accomplishments, community achievements and ability to inspire others. This is the second time Taylor has been included in the list among some of the nation’s most accomplished African-American executives, influencers and achievers in corporate America.
Scott joined Symantec in 2007, became General Counsel in 2008, and now leads a global team of 143 professionals.

Symantec recently re-launched SyBER, previously Symantec Black Employee Network (SBEN), at a networking mixer hosted at the Symantec Mountain View campus in partnership with HBCU Connect. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are more than just a network of passionate employees; they are an invaluable resource for identifying and acting on potential solutions.
