Dear amrb,

Thank you so much for your question! Scott D. Anderson,
as you know is Chairman and CEO of one of the nation’s  top 
3 manufactured housing companies, Affordable Residential Communities.
According to the ARC website, ARC is currently the largest private 
owner and operator of manufactured home communities. They manage over
40,000 homesites in more than 200 properties across 25 states.
ARC was founded in 1996, and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. 
According to an ARC press release the reorganized company was
valued a 1.0 billion dollars in May of 2002.

Here is the bio of Scott Jackson from the Affordable Residential 
Communities website ( )

 	"Scott D. Jackson - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer 

"Scott directs all strategic planning, corporate development and 
acquisition activities for ARC. From 1991 to 1994, Scott served 
in various senior positions in financial service companies owned or 
controlled by Ronald O. Perelman and Gerald J. Ford. In these 
capacities, he oversaw corporate finance activities, including 
financial service company disposition, acquisition and capital 
financing activities. Previously, Scott worked in corporate finance 
– as Vice President of Corporate Finance and serving as Co-Head of 
the Financial Institutions Restructuring Group for Goldman, Sachs &
(1987-1991); as Senior Vice President and Manager of Republic Bank 
Capital Markets (1985-1987); and with Merrill Lynch Capital Markets 
(1979-1985). He also served as a Director of Pilgrims Pride
and as a Director of Madison Financial, Inc. Scott holds a B.S. degree
in Business Finance and Marketing from Colorado State University."

 The ARC site has a map of the company’s locations at:

According to the company’s profile on, ARC employs
700 people (

On the Researchchannel, you can view an hour and a halflecture by 
Scott Jackson on  Business and Economics

The lecture is part of the Profiles in American Enterprise Series, 
featuring leading American entrepeneurs. 

For such a successful guy, there isn’t a lot written about Jackson 
in the press. A search of the LA public library databases(Gale’s bio 
directory, Biography and Genealogy Master index, Business Journals,
etc.) turned up only one article in the New York Times about his
tenure at Republicbank in Dallas. You can find that at The New York
Times, Sept 16,
1986 p34(N) col 6 (1 col in).

Infotrac also lists The Denver Business Journal’s article in 2001
a merger of ARC, in which Jackson is mentioned. “Palladium Inc. of 
Denver, which advises real estate investors on how to maximize their
investments, recently hooked up with Denver-based Affordable
Residential Communities, a developer of manufactured housing
to create a vehicle for that kind of investing nationwide.” You can
the full article in the June 22, 2001 issue.

I searched for an independently prepared business bio on Jackson, but
was only able to locate the one prepared by ARC. I hope this is
sufficient for your purposes. For the generous fee that you offered,
you really deserved more sources, but an extensive search
didn't turn up any. However, if you wish me to track down and
confirm anything, or clarify it further, I hope you will not hesitate
to ask before you rate this answer. Sincerely, cath-ga
