Scott D. Livingston

The City of League City has selected Scott D. Livingston to serve as the new Director of Economic Development beginning June 13.

In this position, Livingston will be responsible for helping the City to achieve economic diversification by strategically implementing the City’s economic development plan including attracting new businesses, business retention and expansion, and downtown revitalization efforts. All of these initiatives were identified as a priority for League City in the City’s ‘Roadmap to the Future.’

“My family and I are excited about relocating to League City and facilitating the community’s numerous and diverse opportunities for economic development,” said Livingston. “I look forward to getting to know the community and enhancing the quality of life for League City residents through a variety of economic development projects.”

Livingston has been responsible for attracting more than $4.3 billion in new investment, 30 industrial and non-industrial projects and 600 new jobs in his current position as the Economic Development Coordinator for the City of La Porte. He also facilitated the development of La Porte’s Town Center, a mixed-use development, which will be anchored by a Gilley’s Family Entertainment Center.

“Scott brings professionalism and extensive experience in economic development, main street revitalization, and business retention and attraction to League City,” said City Manager Mark Rohr. “Our City is continuously growing and as we work to address our number one priority – economic development – having someone with Scott’s breadth of experience will greatly benefit our community.”

Livingston has more than 16 years of experience in economic development, strategic planning, business development and main street revitalization between his positions with La Porte, Global Enterprise Services, and the DeSoto Economic Development Corporation. Additionally, Livingston attained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Baylor University and Masters of Science in Economics with a concentration in Finance from Texas A&M University – Commerce. He is also a Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) with extensive education, training and certifications in economic development, public management and international affairs.
