Scott Hackman

Partner, Family Business Advisor

Scott Hackman

Scott’s experience as co-founder with his parents in their family’s business, One Village Coffee, gives him an inside window into the complexity inherent in family businesses.  Before joining the team in 2010, Scott founded MyOhai, a creative agency in the Philadelphia area, and Open Hand Initiative, a non-profit collective dedicated to community development.

Scott’s passion is to support and develop the Rising Generation in family businesses, facilitating early conversations between the generations around succession planning, coaching rising generation leaders, and chairing the Center’s Rising Generation Peer Group called Leadership Lab. In addition to his role as a lead advisor and partner at DVFBC, Scott provides leadership in marketing initiatives.

A graduate of Eastern Mennonite University and Eastern Mennonite Seminary, Scott has degrees in ministry and leadership. Scott is a member of Family Firm Institute, the global professional association of thought leaders in the field of family enterprise.  Scott has also received training in the Peter Block Model of group facilitation and MIT’s Theory U Process of Transformation.  His graduate work in Anabaptist leadership for the common good, as well as his experience with youth and families, has uniquely prepared Scott to understand the natural complexities of business families.

Scott and his wife Andrea have 2 children at home, June and Jaren, and live in Telford, PA, where he enjoys bicycling, watching documentaries, and spending time with family.
