In a September 5, 2014 ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base, emceed by Major General James D. Demeritt, one of Scott’s former commanders, Scott concluded his 20 year career serving our country in the United States Air Force and the Air National Guard. In 2006 Scott served in Qatar in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. He also served as Legislative Liaison to the United State Senate and House of Representatives for the Air National Guard, and as a White House Social Aide. His last two assignments were at Andrews Air Force Base overseeing Air National Guard cyber and space requirements and coordinating IT communications between the Air Force, Air National Guard and Air Reserve units
Scott received his BS from the University of Washington in Mathematics, Economics and Political Science in 1994, and followed that with an MBA in 1996 from Auburn-Montgomery. In 2005, he received his Certificate of Financial Planning from Georgetown University. After passing his CFP exam in 2007, Scott affiliated with AOG, primarily preparing financial plans, and assisting clients on budget issues and Federal Government retirement considerations. Over the last five years, Scott has begun serving as a “lead” advisor for clients. Scott has attended several due diligence events on real estate, oil and gas drilling, private equity and debt, and stocks and bonds, to be able to support the investments required by the modified endowment model. He will also assume primary responsibility for monitoring and evaluating our stock and bond portfolios and advising the AOG Investment Committee on Separately Managed Accounts.
Pictured with General Demeritt and Scott, are Scott’s wife Susan, daughter Shelby (age 4), and sons Pearson (2 ½), and Anderson (14 months). Scott and Susan live in Alexandria, but are in the process of renovating a home in Vienna for occupancy in the summer of 2015. On a personal note, this is a day that I have been long anticipating. In addition to Scott’s formidable talents, he has become a friend and trusted colleague, and I am thrilled to have him at AOG fulltime. Welcome aboard!
