Biography:
Howard Greenspan, Owner and President of SCS DIrect Inc, has been marketing and reselling products over the past 13 years through the

In 2012, SCS Direct expects earnings of approximately $50 million, employing approximately 70 people.

Greenspan attributes the success of his company to a dedicated workforce, committed to making decisions and taking ownership of their
actions without bias or red tape. Under Greenspan, SCS Direct prides itself on its unique ability to be adaptive to all situations. If an opportunity arises, the company can change even with its size on a moments notice. From product mix, to geographic penetration, to strategic focus - SCS Direct is an ever changing company that evolves at a rapid rate. Each year in retrospect proves to be completely different that the year past.
