Scott P. Schloegel is currently the first vice president, vice chairman of the board, and agency head (acting) of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM), the official U.S. government export credit agency. In January 2017, President Obama appointed Scott to serve as acting first vice president of the Bank, a role that includes the vice chairmanship of the Board of Directors. He assumed the role of acting agency head in December 2017. Mr. Schloegel has more than 25 years of experience working at the state and federal levels of government. A Michigan native, Schloegel began his career as a legislative aide in the Michigan House of Representatives from 1990–1992, covering topics including environmental policy, the Great Lakes, and business-related issues.
In 1993, he began working for Congressman Bart Stupak of Michigan as his district administrator and served as Representative Stupak’s chief of staﬀ in Washington, D.C., from 1997 through January 3, 2011. While serving as chief of staﬀ, Schloegel also served as professional staﬀ and as an investigator on the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee, where he investigated issues ranging from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, to food and drug safety recalls, to cyber security, and oversight of our nation’s nuclear weapons labs.
Schloegel originally joined the Obama Administration in January 2011 as EXIM’s senior vice president of congressional aﬀairs, where he successfully led the Bank to a three-year reauthorization and helped secure multiple increases in appropriations at a time when most federal agencies were seeing across the board cuts. He also guided six EXIM Board members through Senate confirmation.
In July 2014, Schloegel was named senior vice president and chief of staﬀ at EXIM, where he supervised the Chairman’s Oﬃce and oversaw the Congressional & Intergovernmental Aﬀairs, Communications, and Policy divisions of the Bank. His congressional committee experience was an asset because he provided advice and leadership for a number of congressional hearings for EXIM as well as strategic planning for the Bank. He also had significant interaction with White House and Administration oﬃcials on behalf of the chairman.
Scott has completed significant leadership training experience, including programs through the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) and the President’s Leadership Workshop (PLW), which is a six-month leadership program started by President Obama focused on Senior Executive Service (SES) and Senior Leadership (SL) appointees.
Scott lives in northern Virginia with his wife and two teenaged daughters.
