And this is just our executive team.

Scott Levin

CEO and Founder

Scott Levin, is the CEO and Founder of MidDel Consulting. Scott is fiercely committed to our clients and it shows. You can call and talk with any one of our clients -- all of them are 100% referenceable.

Scott built MidDel Consulting based on his own personal values:

  1. "We are relentlessly ethical."
  2. "We do what we say we are going to do."
  3. "We partner with our clients to create solutions."
  4. "Failure is not an option."

Our commitment to these values is why MidDel Consulting is seen as a nationwide leader in Energy consulting in North America.

Scott brings 30 years of experience to our clients. He has worked with a variety of companies, from a start-up in Dublin, Ireland to Fortune 500 companies. He has experience in Gas, Power, Refined Products, and Crude, while tackling projects in commodity risk management, ETRM, and business systems.

Scott earned his B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Minnesota and his MBA in Finance from the University of St. Thomas. Scott serves as the Finance Chair for two Non-Profit organizations: EO (Entrepreneur Organization) and the Normandale Foundation. He is an avid sports fan, and loves to spend his free time “playing” with his family at the lake, fishing and boating. Scott and his wife, Joan, have 3 children and live in Edina, MN.
