Scott Wootton

Owner, The Kawartha Lakes Construction Company, Ltd.

Scott Wootton, President of The Kawartha Lakes Construction Company, started building forts at about the age of 10 and has always had passion for creating things. He started into business in 1988 with a dock/deck, Summer cottage  firm and graduated to Kawartha Lakes Construction in 1995.

The firm is located two hours north of Toronto, Ontario in cottage country, a lakes-based area so boating to work is routine.  He joined Remodelers Advantage in 2005 and says that much of his business education has come though Remodelers Advantage and other building Associations in Ontario.  He very much enjoys the employee teamwork collaboration that happens as the company has grown (currently 32 employees /$6.2 Million 2017 budget)  and has embarked on the journey to transfer ownership to key employees .
