As Executive Vice President, Scofield will play a critical role in shaping the organization’s agenda, providing strategic leadership, and driving BCA’s mission to foster economic growth and protect job creation in the state of Alabama. Central to this mission, he will work with ProgressPAC, BCA’s political affiliate, to help elect pro-business candidates with pro-job agendas.

Aside from legislative expertise, Scofield brings with him a wealth of business experience as a third-generation poultry farmer, the former owner of Clay Scofield Farms, and a background in construction and development.

“It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve with President Pro Tem Greg Reed and my colleagues in the State Senate, and most importantly, to represent the people of Senate District 9,” Scofield said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a voice for my community in Montgomery and eager to contribute my experience and expertise toward advancing BCA’s mission.”
