Nancy Lynch Scott, Class of 1960, is a pioneer businesswoman who endured and overcame the cultural and personal opposition to women in the traditionally all-male field of investment professionals. She has been successful in commercial real estate development with numerous limited partnerships resulting in the construction and operation of 28 motels, warehouses, self-storage complexes, and a wind energy farm. She was one of the first women to found, take public and serve as president of Silvergate Financial Services which was dedicated to promoting the hiring of women in the investment industry.
