Since co-founding Nexus Strategies in 2007, Scott Falmlen has helped coordinate and execute strategic planning, communications, and outreach for political efforts, as well as in the financial, utilities, media, manufacturing, educational, health care, and non-profit sectors.

Falmlen was the executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party from 1999-2005 and the Florida Democratic Party from 1995-1999. During his tenure in North Carolina, Falmlen also served as president of the Association of State Democratic Executive Directors, building a network of policy and political contacts across the nation. Prior to 1995, Falmlen served as a senior advisor to Florida Governor Lawton Chiles and as chief of staff to the majority leader of the Florida Senate.
