Director of Community Engagement
S.E.E.D. Planning Group, LLC

Stephen Campbell is a partner at S.E.E.D. Planning Group, LLC and serves as the director of community engagement. He joined the firm in May 2017 after spending five years acquiring financial planning and investment management experience at Morgan Stanley. A long-time resident of Broome County, Campbell earned a BA in history from Rutgers University, where he played Division 1 lacrosse for the Scarlet Knights. He then went on to earn a master’s degree in education from Binghamton University.

Campbell has a passion for helping and serving people and is committed to helping his community flourish and prosper. By actively engaging other local leaders and professionals to form synergistic relationships, he is motivated by the belief that each individual can make a significant impact to the community.

Campbell serves his community through active board involvement and in various leadership roles. He currently serves as a board member and trustee at Calvary's Love Church, as well as a board member of the Broome Leadership Institute (BLI). He is an active contributor to the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce’s Government Affairs and Legislative committees, and is a member of the advisory councils for the Binghamton University School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the SUNY Best Program. Campbell is also a member of the Binghamton University Forum, the Emerging Leaders Society of Broome County (ELS) and serves as vice chair for Small Business for the United Way of Broome County Campaign Cabinet. 

Humbled by faith, he is not motivated by recognition or accolades. He truly believes that serving others by giving time, talent and resources may change someone’s life forever. Notwithstanding his selflessness, his leadership has been recognized both professionally and locally. In 2015, the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce named Campbell the Young Professional of the Year, recognizing him for excellence, creativity and initiative as an emerging leader in his profession. He has also been recognized as one of the Southern Tier’s Finest by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. While at Morgan Stanley, he received the prestigious Pacesetter award in 2015, 2016, and 2017, which recognizes individuals who serve their clients with the highest standards of excellence.
