|Info||Scott Murphy, 39, is literally in the business of creating jobs. |
Saving and creating jobs, growing small businesses, and finding new ways to tackle old problems - these are the things Scott has done successfully for more than 15 years.
While professional politicians just talk about the need to create jobs, Scott has first-hand experience actually creating them. He's built successful companies, helped create over 1,000 jobs, and worked to make small businesses the economic engines of their communities.
Scott believes that strong families form the cornerstone of strong communities. Born in Missouri, Scott's father was a postal worker and his mother was a teacher. They worked hard and sacrificed to give their kids better opportunities than they had. Scott and his wife Jen Hogan get together with her 57 immediate family members nearly every week for Sunday dinner.
Scott's been blessed to live the American dream. After graduating from Harvard, Scott became a high-tech entrepreneur. He founded Small World Software, later sold to iXL.
Scott has also worked as an aide to two Democratic Governors, Mel Carnahan and Roger Wilson, serving as the Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Roger Wilson of Missouri.
For the last eight years, Scott has worked for Advantage Capital Partners. Advantage helps other businesses grow and create jobs for their local communities. Scott's job is to help these companies grow, expand, and most of all create and protect good-paying jobs here at home.
Scott is married to Jen Hogan, who grew up in Washington County next to her family's dairy farm. Scott and Jen currently live in Glens Falls with their three children, Simone (7), Lux (5), and Duke (3).
