Kim Scott has been a part of the Blach team since 2004 when she graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Initially, she joined the company as a project engineer and was quickly promoted to project manager. The strong relationships she developed with major Bay Area school districts, coupled with her keen business sense and a thorough, strategic understanding of construction, led her to become Director of Education Services. In that role, Kim was – and still is – instrumental in spearheading Blach’s successful education market and business development efforts for all K-12 and higher education opportunities.
Kim’s experience spans a variety of project types and delivery methods and she is highly skilled at managing cross-functional teams. With a focus on client service, Kim works closely with operations and preconstruction groups to identify and deliver the best approach for each individual project, always ensuring a smooth transition from the project development stage into preconstruction. Her steadfast dedication to excellence, combined with the credibility she has earned throughout the industry, make her naturally suited for her current position as Vice President, Business Development & Marketing on the Blach Leadership Team.
A 2017 recipient of the prestigious TWIN Award in recognition for her leadership qualities and community impact, Kim is actively involved with several state-wide organizations focused on advancing education. These include the California Association for School Business Officials (CASBO), the Community College League of California (CCLC), Pivot Learning Partners, California’s Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH), the Community College Facility Coalition (CCFC).
