President & CEO

Scott started working at Martin & Chapman Co. in 1975, while earning his B.A. and M.B.A. in Business Administration from California State University, Fullerton. Scott is a third generation election consultant. His late grandfather, Daniel B. Martin began conducting elections back in 1935, and his late father, Daniel L. Martin, began Martin & Chapman Co. in 1956. Scott's expertise is in his extensive knowledge of the California election laws governing municipal elections.

When he isn’t busy behind his desk, Scott enjoys bike riding, relaxing at the river, home improvement projects and long walks on the beach with Judy followed by a beachside dinner.
