After spending 20 years supporting economic and community development initiatives on the municipal, regional, and statewide levels, Scott Benson joined LAEGC in 2015 as the Economic & Business Development Director. He works closely with the president of the council to encourage business expansion, business retention, entrepreneurship, and business attraction to the cities of Lewiston Auburn.

He is a devoted family man; he lives with his wife Elizabeth in Augusta and is the proud father of four and grandfather to twins.
