Scott holds a master’s in business administration (MBA) from Sacramento State University. He was chosen by his professors to be in the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society. He also earned a bachelor’s in computer science (BSCS) from Pacific Union College. Scott is also a proud alumnus of the Roseville Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Roseville program.

Scott was elected to the Roseville City Council in a city-wide election in 2016 and re-elected by district in 2020. Scott is known in the community for being transparent, available, and responsive. He leads by example at the neighborhood level, business level, and civic level to make the region a better place to live. He is passionate about making a positive difference in the world as he regularly helps to educate the community on many relevant issues.

In return, the community voted Scott as “Favorite Local Businessperson” and “Favorite Civic Leader” in the Style Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards. He was voted “Local Hero” in the Press Tribune’s 2020 and 2021 Best-of-the-Best Awards for his organizational efforts with the 2,000-person Roseville Volunteer Force. He was a 2015 & 2016 finalist in the Gallina’s Business Person of the Year award.

Scott married his college sweetheart, Karen, in 1986. She has a long history as an accomplished nonprofit executive. They are the proud parents of 7 adult children (some by birth and some through adoption of relatives), and they currently have 13 grandchildren. They raised their family in Roseville, started companies here, and will retire here.

In the business community, Scott previously served for nine years as the President of the Downtown Roseville Merchants. He has been a long time active member of the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce, and is a business speaker, trainer, coach, and author. He taught as an adjunct business professor at Jessup University (2017-2021) and for the last 15 years has led a weekly business mastermind networking group called Advanced Business Roundtable, which operates the annual Placer Valley Business Summit.

Scott is the founder and CEO of Advanced Development Concepts, LLC. ADC is a 38-year business consulting company that helps businesses break through barriers that are holding them back, whether it be techniques to increase revenue, gain business exposure, reach target customers, or help solve problems. His company has three small subsidiaries.

Scott was also the original owner of A Dash of Panache, an award-winning restaurant and party place that he operated for over a decade in downtown Roseville. He sold the restaurant in 2016.

Scott served as a Senior Examiner at the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE), which is the California version of the national Malcolm Baldridge Quality Awards program. He lead teams that evaluated the state’s top performing corporations, hospitals, schools, civic governments, and even military programs for prestigious awards. He believes that this unique experience provided him with a fresh perspective of looking at complex organizations and has since helped shape his business perspectives.

In the neighborhoods, he serves on the executive board of the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA), and has previously served as president of two neighborhoods, Pleasant Grove and Westpark (he moved from one to the other). He has helped start new neighborhood associations and provide information, education, and support to help them draw close and thrive.

Scott's favorite quote is from Woodrow Wilson: “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand."
