He further stated, “I’m grateful for the confidence and support of the Board of Directors to become the new Executive Director of this wonderful organization. I look forward to this opportunity to enhance the work of the Committee for Dulles and the value provided to its members.”
York joined the Committee and the Board of Directors in October of 2019, then was appointed the Interim Executive Director this past March. Scott is also President of the York Consulting Group, LLC, and also served the citizens of Loudoun County for 24 years with 16 of those years as chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors.

Under York’s leadership, Loudoun County transformed into one of the nation’s premier locations to live and work, establishing itself as a technology magnet and a thriving hub for regional and international investment. York also led the successful effort to bring Metro’s Silver Line to Loudoun, including stations that are scheduled to open next year at the airport and in eastern Loudoun.
