Scott grew up on a diversified livestock/grain farm in southeast North Dakota. He attended North Dakota State University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree. After graduation, he started his career with USDA, APHIS in Denver, Colorado. A desire to get back to his roots in North Dakota found him accepting a position with Bell Farms of Wahpeton, North Dakota. While working fulltime, he also farmed and raised cattle by expanding his parent’s operation near Oakes, North Dakota. An opportunity to exit production ag and enter finance/insurance found Scott accepting a loan officer position with AgCountry Farm Credit Services in Fergus Falls, Minnesota and he eventually became Branch Manager.
Today, Scott's career path has brought him to Hurley & Associates, finding solutions for producers’ farm marketing needs. A solid background and understanding of finance, insurance, production agriculture and regulations will promote successful partnerships with farmer clients.
Scott and his wife currently reside in Starbuck, Minnesota. They have two grown sons and a passion for international travel and sailing.
