Michael Gary Scott was named Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton after a phenomenally successful run as a salesperson in the Scranton branch under the tutelage of Edward Truck. In his role as Regional Manager, Scott is responsible for executing sales strategies and marketing as well as logistics and order coordination for all of Northeastern Pennsylvania and parts of the Mid-Atlantic region. Known for his personal touch and affability, Michael Scott's leadership has inspired other employees that since took the leap into management, including Ryan Howard, Darryl Philbin, Jim Halpert, Andy Bernard, and Dwight Schrute. Scott was instrumental in the launch of Dunder Mifflin Infinity and contributed to some of Dunder Mifflin's most successful corporate initiatives, including The Dundies, Diversity Day, the highly successful Golden Ticket program, and Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Fun Run Pro Am Race for the Cure – now known as the Annual Dunder Mifflin Fun Run.
A lifelong resident of Scranton, Michael Scott enjoys improvised comedy, the internet, and screenwriting in his spare time. His screenplay “Threat Level Midnight” was submitted to several prestigious film festivals. He's currently married to former Dunder Mifflin employee Holly Flax. Scott is also the founder of the now-defunct Michael Scott Paper Company and appeared on the children's television show Fundle Bundle.
