2012 Leader of the Year: Tamy Scott

What makes a great leader? We’re lucky here at UDOT because we have many individuals to turn to for inspiration but today we honored one in particular. “A leader, a lot of the time, isn’t the person who thinks of them self as a leader, but they act that way and it is a natural attribute. A leader sets a vision, sets a goal and then they focus on the people to see how to make them successful,” Interim Director Carlos Braceras explained. One such leader is our 2012 Leader of the Year Tamy Scott.

Tamy was joined by her husband and UDOT leaders to celebrate being named 2012 Leader of the Year.

Tamy has been with the Motor Carrier Division for 27 years and has been supervisor of the Investigator Unit for the last seven. Tamy supervises nine employees, in both Salt Lake City and St. George, who are responsible for ensuring motor carrier safety regulation compliance.

You might think that it is difficult to supervise employees in different parts of the state but Tamy has found ways to keep her team a cohesive group. This is demonstrated by their willingness to help one another out, “it is not uncommon to witness several individuals helping with a large carrier review or when someone has had personal challenges and has fallen behind,” Tamy’s nomination acknowledged.

Tamy is not just a supervisor with her team, she is also willing to do the jobs she asks her employees to do. Most of her time with the Department has been with the safety investigation area so she understands the important role this group has. “She is willing to do the work herself and allow [her employees] to watch and learn.” She also uses this one-on-one interaction to develop future training for the group.

Her selfless leadership style was exemplified in her remarks following the leader of the year announcement. “I’m humbled by this,” Tamy began. “The motor carrier team has made our division look so good and the investigators work so well together and I’ve had such good leaders in front of me.”

Congratulations Tamy from all of us throughout the Department!
