Scott Turner

The Heart of the Community Engagement & Opportunity Council

CEOC Founder and CEO Scott Turner has always had a heart for helping people, as shown by his long history of serving others. He and his wife Robin created their family foundation in 2021 with the mission to help those living in impoverished communities by providing life-giving, sustainable resources and opportunities.

Immediate effect & long term sustainability

The formation of CEOC came shortly after Scott returned from his role as Executive Director of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council (WHORC). Here, he initiated the revitalization process in areas that have been deeply affected by poverty and hopelessness for generations. Under his leadership, private entities invested more than $75 billion in under-resourced communities located in Federally designated Opportunity Zones. The results of his efforts have been life-changing, showing both immediate effects and long-term sustainability for so many people.

Prior to his work in the White House, Scott served two terms in the Texas House of Representatives and most recently, he held the longstanding title of Chief Inspiration Officer for nearly 17 years at Systemware, Inc.

Scott currently operates as Chief Visionary Officer at JPI and CEO of Scott Turner Consulting Group. He is also a Senior Advisor to the EVP of Football Operations at the National Football League (NFL) and serves as an associate pastor at Prestonwood Baptist Church.

Additionally, Scott is a nationally recognized motivational speaker and serves on numerous boards including:
