    Scott Makinson is the local owner of the Express Employment Professionals located in Indianapolis, IN (East side), along with his wife, Emily Makinson. The east side office was launched in March of 2005 and quickly earned a reputation for responsiveness and service excellence, achieving the coveted “Circle of Excellence” award in 2007. Under new ownership since 2009, Scott and Emily, along with their team, are once again setting the standard for personal service and operational excellence, which includes a “Fast Track” award for 2010, followed by Circle of Excellence awards in 2011 and 2012. Scott attributes his success to the team that works at his office and their dedication to serving our clients and associates. Scott & Emily first met through a staffing company while going through the evaluation hire process as associates. Little did they know that their experience in staffing would come full circle 15 years later as they help clients and associates find the right match for their skills and needs.
