Who am I?

My name is Scott Kerr, and I’m founder & president of Silvertone Consulting. My company is a brand and insights consultancy that helps luxury and lifestyle brands flourish in fast-changing times. I’m an experienced global brand marketing leader and luxury expert who has held top executive positions for a number of world-class media, advertising, and consumer goods companies.

I also produce and host podcasts on the luxury business:

“The Luxury Item” podcast is recognized around the world as the leading podcast on the business of luxury. On each episode, I have insightful discussions with the luxury industry’s top leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators on topics that matter most. The goal is simple: Provide listeners with valuable insights and takeaways that will inspire them to rethink their strategies and unlock new growth opportunities. Serving listeners in more than 100 countries, The Luxury Item podcast has become one of the most influential voices of the luxury business. It’s available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts.

“Facing the Giants” podcast explores how luxury startups are challenging the Goliaths of the industry with innovative technology, new business models, and smart strategies. I interview luxury entrepreneurs about what's driving them and how their companies are pointing a new way forward to meet the changing demands of the luxury business and affluent consumers. It’s also available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts.
