Scott Brumley, Vineyard Financial Partners


Scott has owned a CPA firm for 37 years. He says, “You must constantly learn in this industry to give your clients the best advice. Not a month goes by that I do not learn something new, and this has allowed me to accumulate a vast…

…wealth of knowledge and experience over the past decades.”

Scott has served on the boards of the Huntersville Chamber of Commerce and Charlotte Mecklenburg Scholastic Chess Association. He also performed the duties as treasurers of the North Carolina Junior Olympic Wrestling Association, North Meck Soccer Club, and numerous PTAs and Booster Clubs. Additionally, Scott served as the webmaster for the 2000 National High School Chess Championship. Scott also was the Chairperson of Finance and Stewardship at his church.

An early adopter of technology, Scott was featured in a PC Magazine article in the 1980s about a tax software program he wrote. Additionally, he developed a community website in the 1990s that was recognized as a top-25 internet community website in the country by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

Scott enjoys traveling to foreign countries, experiencing new cuisines and cultures. But mostly, he takes pleasure in visiting his six adult children and ten grandchildren who live in various states.
