Scott earned an MBA-MCA degree from Sacramento State University. He also has a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from Pacific Union College in Angwin, CA.

Scott has been married since 1986 to his college sweetheart, Karen. They are the parents of 7 children (some by birth and some through adoption of relatives), and currently have 9 grandchildren. They raised their family in Roseville, started companies here, and plan to retire here.

Scott is the CEO of Advanced Development Concepts, LLC. ADC is a 30+ 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 two small subsidiaries: Advanced Programming Concepts (a software/tech company) and Advanced Publishing Concepts (an author-services company). Scott was also the original owner of an award-winning restaurant that he operated for over a decade in downtown Roseville (A Dash of Panache). He sold the restaurant in February 2016.

Scott is very involved in the regional business community, economic development, the neighborhoods, and tackling solutions for the unhoused in our county.

In the business community, he previously served for nine years as president of the Downtown Roseville Merchants, operates the Advanced Business Roundtable, teaches as a business professor at William Jessup University, and is a member of the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce. He is a business speaker, trainer, coach, and author.

Scott has been voted “Favorite Local Businessperson” and “Favorite Civic Leader” in the Style Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards. He was a 2015 and 2016 finalist in the Gallina’s Business Person of the Year award.

In the neighborhoods, he has served on the executive board of the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA), as president of the Westpark Neighborhood Association, and as president of the Pleasant Grove Neighborhood Association. He has helped start new neighborhood associations and provided information, education, and support to help them thrive. You will often find he and his wife at neighborhood functions across the city.

He previously served as the only business representative on the Placer County Homeless Advisory Committee and has since helped form the Placer Rescue Mission, a 501(c)3 charity organization. The PRM is following proven national models to develop a large “housing first” project that could essentially eliminate resident homelessness in Placer County and save the county $8 million per year once it’s completed. While he has deep compassion for the growing problem of homelessness, he is excited over the economic cost savings to our region by properly solving the problem and helping restore many of these lives back into a thriving community.

He 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 led 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.
