Executive Director

financial education 3rd Decade


Scott Bennett, CFP® is the Executive Director of 3rd Decade. Immediately following the completion of his Bachelor of Science in Economics degree from Northern Arizona University, Scott moved to Los Angeles to work for a national education nonprofit called City Year. After the program ended, he began working in the advertising industry. Scott quickly came to miss the rewarding feeling of working with a non-profit. His passion for work that empowers others led him home to Tucson. His leadership over the past year and a half has led the program to take effective strides, offering the program nationally and rightly making financial literacy more accessible to thousands more.

When Scott isn’t working on 3rd Decade, he furthers his work within the community through a mentorship program with Big Brothers Big Sisters. In his free time, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife and their two children, playing basketball, and hiking.
