Ward, who debuted in the industry in New York and Paris as a top Ford Model, launched his booking career as an agent for Michelle Pommier Models in Miami. He was recruited to New York to aid in launching IMG Models with the prestigious title of Head Scout. Ward's reputation grew: He was known for having one the best eyes for discovering talent, for developing careers, and for representing the most successful and recognized faces in the industry.

He took his years of experience in the industry and pushed fashion forward. Envisioning a modeling agency that could represent models across the globe no matter if they lived in a small town or a major city, Ward Cottrell opened the doors of MODELSCOUT INC in 1991.
