Mayor Scott Shipley

Scott Shipley, Mayor

Term: April 2023 to April 2026


In 1989, Scott and his wife, Amy chose to start a family and establish roots here in Crestwood. They soon became active members of Our Lady of Providence and raised four children. Together as a family they developed a strong sense of faith and a commitment to serving others.

Scott earned a master’s degree in Telecommunications & Information Management from Washington University and went on to enjoy a successful 30-year career with Southwestern Bell and AT&T, where he worked in IT and sales roles. In 2014, he was blessed with the opportunity to retire early.

Embracing this new chapter, Scott decided to start a small business and devote more time to giving back to his community through various service projects with his church, the Boy Scouts, and other local organizations. Since then, he has been able to pursue his passions to hopefully make an impact to those in our community.

Together We Are Crestwood

I proudly stand with Crestwood's City staff, the Board of Aldermen, and all the dedicated volunteers who serve on our City's boards and commissions. Together, we share a commitment to making Crestwood a great place to call home.

Our residents deserve a hometown that strives to deliver personal safety, a healthy and sustainable environment, excellent schools, attractive neighborhoods, exceptional outdoor spaces, dependable infrastructures, well-planned commercial amenities, and engaging activities for all.

Realizing this vision requires building strong community support, as well as fostering a government workplace that prioritizes integrity, continuous improvement, and extraordinary service. By working collaboratively with our residents, we can ensure that their needs and priorities are reflected in everything we do. 

Our commitment to maintaining high standards of transparency, accountability, and ethical behavior will help to build trust and confidence in our government and create a culture of excellence that benefits everyone.

I am proud to live in Crestwood and hope that you are too.
