Scott was born and raised in California, but after 20 years as a pilot in the US Navy, he settled in Florida. After owning a couple of other businesses, he saw the opportunity to buy Hester's in November 2000, and converted it to Hester's Abbey Floorcoverings in January 2001. In the past eleven years he has learned a lot about floor coverings, and has brought some good organizational and management skills to Hester's. In 2006 he built a new 2600 sq ft warehouse behind Hester's, which enabled him to expand the showroom to 4900 sq ft. Scott has also been instrumental in reaching out to the community through various projects and direct giving. He established the Hester's High School scholarship program in 2006 which has given eight $1000 scholarships to our college-bound seniors.
