Scott received his degree in business administration from the University of Oklahoma, while serving as managing director and co-broker of his family’s residential and commercial development and brokerage firms. He left family interests for an opportunity to head up the newly formed commercial lending division of the state’s oldest mortgage banking firm in the late 1970’s.
Five years later, upon completing the sale of the mortgage company to a Rhode Island savings bank, Scott left to serve as managing partner of The Richmond Companies, a commercial development, management and mortgage-banking firm. Over the next eight years, he oversaw the Richmond Companies’ development of more than two million square feet of high-end commercial projects including low-rise office, hotel, retail and industrial properties throughout the southwest.
The Richmond Companies also served as an asset manager/advisor to various lending institutions, including banks, savings and loans, and insurance companies. Additionally, Scott served as an interim officer and director of several institutions for the FSLIC, RTC and finally the FDIC until moving to California in 1990 to serve as vice president of a start-up development firm.
In 1990, Scott moved to California to join a childhood friend in the startup of a commercial development firm, Fancher Development Services, where in ten years’ time they successfully completed more than 3,000 projects ranging from management of nationwide retrofits for such chains as Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC to serving as fee developer for Kmart Corporation for the development of regional shopping centers.
Scott brings an intimate knowledge and understanding of every aspect of planning and development of a wide range of project types and sizes with particular experience in mixed use and retail center development.
