Col. Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell is a 25-year Air Force senior leader who has commanded large, complex organizations both in combat and in peacetime. A highly decorated fighter pilot, Scott instructed at the prestigious U.S. Air Force Fighter Weapons School (TOP GUN) where he was recognized as the top A-10 instructor pilot multiple times. He has commanded at the squadron, group and wing levels. In addition to his flying and command experience, Scott served on the Office of the Secretary of Defense staff as a country director where he oversaw Department of Defense policy development for Afghanistan.

Few bring the diversity of command experiences that Scott has. As a Fighter Wing Commander, he was not only responsible for the training and employment of a 4,500-member combat wing but also charged with the responsibility of commanding an installation of 11,000 personnel, over 10,000 acres, and $2 billion in assets. His leadership in this capacity was recognized with the Commander-In-Chief Installation Excellence Award, naming his base the top installation in the United States Air Force. As an Expeditionary Operations Group Commander, Scott was responsible for 1,000 personnel conducting 24/7 combat operations in southern Afghanistan.

Scott’s combat accolades are unrivaled, awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross three times for missions in Afghanistan and the Bronze Star twice for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition to thousands of flight hours in the venerable A-10 “Warthog,” he also has combat experience flying the MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft. While primarily serving as a career aviator, Scott also brings very unique experiences as an Air Liaison Officer/Joint Terminal Attack Controller as well as an air planner for Joint Special Operations Command.

As an Air Force senior leader, Scott’s engagements were not limited to military members in uniform. While developing foreign policy for the Department of Defense, he interfaced with senior policymakers, diplomats, and elected officials on a daily basis. As the commander of a large Air Force installation with a $2.6 billion impact on the local economy, Scott routinely worked with officials at the city, county, and state-level along with local business leaders to maximize results for all involved supporting the mission.

A 1995 U.S. Air Force Academy graduate with military distinction and a degree in management, Scott holds advanced degrees in the military and national security strategy from both the U.S. Army Command & General Staff College as well as the National War College where he was a distinguished graduate.
