Employee Spotlight: Scott Woods

For our April #EmployeeSpotlight, we're featuring Scott Woods, President and CEO of South Carolina Federal! Scott is celebrating his 25th anniversary with our credit union this month, so we wanted to help you get to know him a little better.
  • Scott has lived in different parts of South Carolina his entire life. He was born in Charleston and raised on Folly Beach. After high school, he became a firefighter for the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department before attending the College of Charleston. After graduation, he worked in Public Accounting for a few years before entering the Credit Union industry.
  • In his spare time, Scott loves woodworking and metalworking, especially when his daughters join in to help. His favorite projects include furniture making and restorations and helping his daughters with Cosplay outfits. Scott and his family are big Clemson fans. On Saturdays in the fall, you'll find him in orange cheering on the Tigers.
  • In 2022, Governor Henry McMaster awarded Scott the Order of the Palmetto, South Carolina's highest civilian honor, in recognition of a lifetime of extraordinary achievement, service, and contributions to the Palmetto State.
  • Scott is a history buff and has a lot of noteworthy keepsakes to prove it. One of the items he cherishes most is a copper ingot recovered from the wreck of the Spanish Treasure Galleon Atocha which sank off Key West in 1622.
