Scott Loftis, Capital One Bank
Recently being named Top 40 Community and Business Leaders by Leesburg Today, Scott Loftis is making his mark in Loudoun’s young professional society.
Scott, a Loudoun County native, currently serves as a Vice President in Business Banking at Capital One in Mclean, VA. On a day-to-day basis he helps companies and organizations understand cash-flow cycles while finding ways to give them the capital they need to grow and succeed. One of the top achievements Scott has received from Capital One is the 2013 Visionary Award for the Virginia Team.
While Scott is making a positive impact in the work force, it is his efforts outside the office that set him apart. Two of most valued positions he holds are with the Loudoun Young Professionals and a global incubator, 1776.
“As the Chairman of the Loudoun Young Professionals I get the privilege to serve with many of the most talented and successful young professionals in Loudoun County,” Scott said. “As young professionals our mission is to engage others in our YP Chamber community, help them gain experience through connections with community leaders, and enrich the community through service.”
Former 2012 Chairman Jamie Pearson with Middleburg Bank stated, “Scott uses his leadership skills to make our community the best it can be. He consistently shows the highest respect to everyone he comes in contact with. Scott leads by example and his example is contagious.”
To show his exemplary leadership skills, Scott donates time and knowledge to 1776; a global incubator platform that identifies and supports the most promising high-growth startups from around the world in industries like education, health, energy and cities.
“Scott has taken an active role in providing banking and financial guidance to 1776 members,” said 1776 CFO Steve Graubart. “He does this through one-on-one mentoring sessions, leading workshops on subjects such as break-even analysis and by advising on Capital One banking services.”
Scott, at the age of 32, stays actively involved with multiple volunteer positions such as:
- 2013 Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Vice Chairman
- 2014 Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Chairman
- 2014 Board of Directors for Doorways for Women and Families
- 2012 and 2013 501c Tech Judge of Technology Impact Awards
- 2004-2013 Volunteer with Juvenile Diabetes Walk to Cure
When Scott has spare time he spends it like the true West Virginia University Mountaineer that he is. “I am an avid outdoorsman. I enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, golfing and watching live local sporting events,” Scott said. More importantly he likes to spend time with his family, especially his nephews.
