Scott F. Simpson became president of the Utah Credit Union Association in December of 2003. At 38, he was the youngest credit union league president in the country. Scott has been noted for his success in mobilizing the credit unions’ grassroots and for his ability to build coalitions and alliances that advance the cause of credit unions.
Scott brought with him to the job of president a wealth of political experience. Serving twice as executive director of the Utah Republican Party, he also served a stint as a special assistant to Utah’s senior United States Senator, Orrin Hatch. Simpson left the Utah GOP and joined the Utah Credit Union Association as Senior Vice President for Governmental Affairs.
Thus equipped to confront the particular challenges facing Utah’s credit unions, Simpson has implemented an aggressive long term strategy to protect Utah’s credit union movement while also building its positive commercial brand to new levels and making the “credit union difference” even more widely known and available to Utah families.
Scott holds a degree in public relations and Japanese from Weber State University. He and his wife, Samantha, reside with their three daughters in Kaysville, Utah.
