His new role will include the oversight of consumer and commercial underwriting, lending operations, loss mitigation and risk management.

A graduate of Spokane Valley’s Central Valley High School, Scott holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from WSU. He earned an MBA from Western Governor’s University, covering costs through the tuition reimbursement program offered to any STCU employee who wants to further their education.
