Bio

Scott Taylor’s life is one defined by leadership, service and innovation. Scott was raised by a single mother in a small town of Hebron on the Eastern Shore. When he was 11 years old, he began paying taxes from his work on a local farm. During Scott’s teenage years, his Big Brothers/Big Sisters mentor, Andrew Jones, had a profound influence in his life. Andy taught Scott everything from the importance of dinner table etiquette to how to choose stock options. After high school, Scott enlisted in the U.S. Navy, became the youngest SEAL at the time at age 19. As a SEAL, Scott served throughout South and Central America where he gained a fluency in Spanish, built rapport with host nation militaries and leaders, and advanced U.S. interests. Scott also served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was injured in a fall during a combat mission in 2005. Scott served over 8 years in the SEAL teams and spent 2 years teaching his fellow SEALs marksmanship and reconnaissance. While in the military, Scott started a small business and currently owns and operates a real estate brokerage company, a fitness center and a security consulting firm. Scott led a security mission that ensured the safety of U.S. citizens in Yemen during the Israel/Palestinian conflict in 2009. Scott studied Government Contracting at Old Dominion University. He ran for Mayor of Virginia Beach in 2008 and performed well among many voting blocks. Scott serves on the board of the UDT/SEAL Museum and the Virginia Beach Forum, an organization that seeks to promote civic discourse in Hampton Roads. He is a member of the UDT/Seal Association, the American Legion, The Navy League, and the VFW. Scott is the “Voice of Leadership” on Portfolio.com, a video blog affiliated with the Virginian Pilot that highlights examples of leadership and goodwill in Hampton Roads. He is active with the charity Operation Smile, serves as a mentor to an 11 year old, and attends Wave Church in Virginia Beach.
