Samuel Scott Financial Group

Samuel Scott named one of the best places to work in San Diego.




Many companies say their employees like coming to work, but Samuel Scott Financial Group is one of rare few that can back up that claim.

The boutique mortgage company recently recognized as one of the Best Places to Work by the San Diego Business Journal.

“It has been wonderful to watch Samuel Scott Financial Group grow and take on such a strong role in the community,” says Todd Pianin, the company’s founder and president. “I am proud to own a company that is home to so many outstanding professionals, and truly flattered that we have been named one of The Best Places to Work in 2012.”
Through its county-wide survey and awards program, the San Diego Business Journal salutes companies that have worked hard to create environments in which their employees enjoy going to work.

The winners have practices that include rewarding hard-working employees, investing in training, offering wellness programs, and providing opportunities for team-building and social activities—just a few of the perks that make Samuel Scott stand out. The company is known for making sure everyone feels appreciated through barbecue lunches, bowling nights, regular company mixers and holiday parties. There’s even cheering in the sales meetings.

“The average person spends more time at work than they do at home, and financial professionals are notorious for putting in long hours,” Pianin explains. “The company culture is going to have an impact on your life, so we make creating a positive workplace a top priority.”

The company was founded by Todd “Samuel” Pianin and Brian “Scott” Reynolds in 2006. Having worked together in the lending industry since 1995, Pianin and Reynolds recognized the market was rapidly changing and the needs of their clients were increasing. By opening Samuel Scott in the heart of San Diego, they were able to maintain the high level of customer service on which they had built their reputations.

The Carmel Valley office, which opened with just four loan originators and a small supporting staff, is now home to nearly 30 to 50 mortgage professionals. The company is recognized for its superior customer service, as well as the way its mortgage advisors tailor the residential loan process to fit each individual client. According to the company, these professionals believe in building lasting relationships, putting the client’s needs before their own and taking an honest approach to every transaction.
