Scott Sanders

Chief Executive Officer/managing partner

Everyone’s Mentor. Sustainable before sustainability was cool. 

“I’m in the background making sure opportunities are there for the future.”

Ever since Scott could remember he wanted to be a builder. After graduating high school, enrolling in the Construction Management Program at Illinois State was a no-brainer for him. He had a voracious appetite for this new practical knowledge and pursued his degree with a laser-like focus.

Even before graduation he knew exactly what he needed to do – work for a large homebuilding company to gain some additional experience and save up enough money so that he could start building homes his way. Scott founded BrightLeaf in 2008 and built the first BrightLeaf home in Brookfield soon after.

In his role, Scott works closely with everyone on the BrightLeaf team to help them excel at each of their positions. He also makes sure that the business runs smoothly and reliably by developing and managing the relationships BrightLeaf has with vendors, suppliers, and other various partners.

Scott spends time relaxing by driving his heart rate up. He’s a big fan of running and mountain biking and utilizing all Chicagoland has to offer in terms of nature and scenery. He’s also a pro in the kitchen and likes utilizing the same planning and precision as he builds homes with.
