Read All About It: Affectionately known as the “Duke of Distribution,” Scott Kaufman has been the force behind getting The Independent into the hands of our rabid readers for the past 27 years. As our Circulation Director, his tireless charm and old-school ethics recently earned him the prestigious Circle of Excellence Award from the auditing firm Verified Audit Circulation. “Most of the current Independent staff were in diapers when I started this job,” he quipped when we caught up with him on his busy beat. He’s the man on the street keeping it real and making it happen. You go, Scott!
