Larry Scott was a former professional player on the men's tour, even became a member of the ATP Tour's board of directors, and served on the board of the men's professional tennis players association. He eventually rose to a position of Chief Operating Officer. The men and women are always competing against each other for money, television, sponsors and publicity.
When the Women's Tennis Association conducted their new search for a CEO, Larry made the short list. After his interview, the search committee advised him that he did such a good job he may be considered a leading candidate. But before presenting him to their board, they needed to "check him out." It's at that time, the COO of the ATP Tour demonstrated his ability to build consensus.
Larry went straight to people he thought might have an issue with his candidacy for the position. He flew here; he flew there. He had meetings in the U.S., in Europe - wherever his detractors were, he went to visit them. This surprised many on the search committee. But Larry was demonstrating, perhaps not only to the search committee, but also to himself, whether he could draw together diverging views and have them follow his lead. And that he did. On March 31, 2003, Larry Scott was named by the board of directors of the Women's Tennis Association the new Chair and CEO.
"Larry Scott is a professional guy, and each time we've had discussions, he always tries to find solutions; he has diplomacy."Angelo Codignoni, President, EuroSport
