Scott William Hartman
Scott William Hartman is an entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist with a dedication to veterans. He is currently the New York State Chairman for the World War II Salute Organization, a nonprofit that seeks to provide a state funeral for the last Medal of Honor recipient from World War II.
Scott, whose father was drafted into the Army and whose grandfather served during WWII in Germany, doesn’t want his children and their generation to forget the great sacrifices made for them. He believes that the petition to provide the last Medal of Honor recipient with a state funeral will honor not only the individual but all 16 million of the men and women who served our country and whose contributions helped make our world the way it is today.
In addition to his work with State Funerals for WWII Veterans, Scott William Hartman is a Member of the Board of Directors for the American Diabetes Association. He is also an Advisory Board Member Member to the Dallas Cowboy Club. He also participates and contributes to many other philanthropic endeavors.
Professionally, Scott William Hartman has had a long and successful career in business. He has occupied several roles, including CEO/Managing Partner of both public and private companies, a Board member on privately held companies, and Chairman of the Board of publicly held companies. He has also been a private equity investor, consultant and strategist, as well as a capital markets intermediary.
Scott is the Founder and President of Advantage Business Brokers LLC, established in 1993. The nationally recognized company represents sellers of businesses and connects them with potential buyers, provides strategic and operational consulting and raises debt and equity capital for companies of all sizes.
Previously, Scott William Hartman led a successful career as a race car driver. He began racing after he successfully sold his first company in 1994. Rather than saving his money or making more investments, the young Scott William Hartman took his profits and wanted to experience a lifelong dream and passion and built a race car team. His father was a driver, as well, and Scott grew up watching him race.
For the next six years, Scott participated in an average of 33 races a year, all around the world. He participated in the Formula Ford and Porsche Series and was even a member of Ferrari’s North American test team. His time racing is a gift he will always be grateful for. Not only was he able to race with his father at his side —taking life in a beautiful full circle—he had the opportunity to form relationships with great people from around the world.
