SEDCO Board Members include:

Jonathan Crasnick (Chair) specializes in commercial real estate finance with an MBA from the University of Southern Maine. Jon currently works for People’s United Bank in Portland and has over ten years of commercial real estate experience having worked in both development and lending. Jon and his wife moved to Scarborough in 2011. They have two young children and understand the attraction of Scarborough to both residents and businesses in the Greater Portland region.

James (Jim) Hartley is both a resident and a business owner in the Dunstan area of Scarborough.  Along with his father-in-law, Dick Whitmore, Jim founded Pine Tree Seafood and Produce Co., a family-run neighborhood market. Jim understands the dedication it takes to run a small business. In fact, he and his family live in the house next door to the market. He’s had a passion for small business creation and promotion since childhood and joined the SEDCO Board to lend his skills and experience to help other entrepreneurs realize their dreams of owning a business.

Travis Kennedy (Vice- Chair) brings to the Board nearly two decades of experience in senior positions across state, local and federal government.
