Scott Wragg | Senior managing partner, CBIZ Inc.

WHILE TAKING AN ACCOUNTING class in high school, Scott Wragg became fascinated with the process of recording, analyzing and reporting business and financial transactions.

Wragg quickly realized it was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Three decades later, Wragg is still excited to go to work, he said.

“First and foremost, it’s about helping our clients. We are passionate about helping them grow and achieve their goals,” said Wragg, the senior managing partner for CBIZ Inc. “I especially value the relationships I’ve developed with many clients over the years. I’m also passionate about the very talented group of people I work with, and I continue to learn from them daily.”

After earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in taxation from Bryant University, Wragg received a gold medal for the highest score on his certified public accountant exam in 1985. He took an entry level position with Arthur Young & Co. in 1985 and became manager four years later.

Wragg took on a new challenge joining CBIZ, which has a Providence office, as managing director late in 2004. He has since held several leadership positions within the company, including his current role as senior managing partner.

Along with hiring new team members to bolster and expand upon the services that CBIZ offers, Wragg helped implement programs meant to enhance the company’s collaborative, supportive and inclusive culture. Wragg helped CBIZ launch the Diversity & Inclusion Task Force. The company also introduced CBIZ Cares, a program to help the company give back to the community within New England.

“We renewed and refocused our efforts to give back to the communities in which we live and work,” Wragg said. “We encouraged all team members to volunteer time at nonprofit organizations selected by a committee of our team members. CBIZ Cares has been a great success and we have supported a number of great causes in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.”
