Scott Painter

Founder and CEO

Scott is a serial entrepreneur in the automotive and technology industries and has founded dozens of disruptive companies over the past 25 years. His new venture, Fair, is pioneering the flexible car ownership model by allowing customers to get a car entirely on their phone and turn it in whenever they want. Prior to Fair, Scott founded TrueCar with the aim of eliminating negotiation from the car-buying process by providing data-driven pricing research to both dealers and consumers. Painter also founded Cars Direct, which took the pioneering step of introducing upfront pricing to auto retail.
