About Scott Stone
Meet Scott Stone, PE
Scott represented Mecklenburg County in the North Carolina House of Representatives. His experience as a legislator and a business leader have prepared him to represent Mecklenburg County in the North Carolina Senate.
Scott has grown his company from a two-person start-up to a multi-million dollar operation, with three offices across the region. The firm has been recognized by the Charlotte Business Journal as a “Fast 50” company – one of the 50 fastest growing companies in the Charlotte Region, the past two years (#5 in 2016 and #15 in 2017), and by ENR magazine as one of the largest engineering firms in the Southeast.
Scott and his wife Kristine live in the Springs Village neighborhood near the Arboretum. He lived in the Providence Country Club neighborhood for almost 20 years. Scott has two daughters who are both graduates of Ardrey Kell High School. His younger daughter attends NC State and his older daughter recently graduated from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
Scott has been very active in the local community. He is chairman emeritus and founder of the North Carolina Heroes Fund, a non-profit which raises money for military families who are suffering financial hardships. This organization serves a critical role within the military community for veterans attempting to transition to civilian life. Stone served as chairman of the organization for seven years and is still active today.
Scott served on the City of Charlotte’s Business Advisory Committee from 2006 to 2010, the last two years as chairman, a role to which he was appointed by Mayor Pat McCrory. In this role, he was one of the lead authors of the city’s Small Business Strategic Plan.
When Mecklenburg County faced a budget deficit in 2011 and was forced to consider cuts to the library system, Scott was called upon to assist in finding solutions. He was appointed a member of the Future of Our Libraries Task Force which addressed the challenges facing Charlotte Mecklenburg Libraries.
Scott was a member of Class XIV of Leadership North Carolina. He was a 40 Under 40 Award Recipient in 2005 – an award presented annually to the top 40 business leaders under 40 by the Charlotte Business Journal. Stone is also an Eagle Scout.
