Meet Our Volunteers – Hugh MacMaster

January 12, 2010

After decades of developing his expertise with an international agricultural equipment firm, Hugh MacMaster now shares that same business know-how with SCORE Lancaster clients. This engineer-turned-mentor offers local entrepreneurs skills that include everything from human resources and training to not-for-profit leadership and board development.

He was drawn to the small business mentoring group through the recommendation of friend and SCORE counselor Dave Templeton. Hugh helps clients with a variety of functions, including the development of business plans, which he describes as a must-have first step for anyone considering entrepreneurship. As SCORE Lancaster’s Vice President of Education, this management expert also assesses course needs and oversees curriculum development for the 50 low-cost classes the group offers. 

But Hugh’s roles as a mentor and an educator are just as important to him as they are to his clients. He says, “SCORE’s been a good education for me. I’ve learned how passionate [clients] can be and how enthused and optimistic they can be. Some clients I’ve had I truly have a friendship with.” 

He also enjoys being part of the SCORE Lancaster family. Hugh says, “It’s a good network of bright, motivated people interested in business, and there’s a lot of satisfaction in being part of that. 

In addition to mentoring small business with SCORE, Hugh serves on the board of the Lancaster County Library System, and operates his own agricultural engineering consulting business.
