Stellar Vice President to Lead Society of American Military Engineers’ Jacksonville Post

Stellar Commercial Vice President Dwyn Taylor has been elected President of the Society of American Military Engineers’ (SAME) Jacksonville Post.

Taylor oversees federal project development for Stellar, an architecture, engineering, construction and mechanical services firm. Taylor joined Stellar in 2011 following a 27-year career in the United States Navy. His one-year term as SAME Jacksonville Post President began July 10.

SAME ( is the United States’ professional military engineering association, uniting architecture, engineering, construction, facility management and environmental entities and individuals in the public and private sectors to prepare for—and overcome—natural and manmade disasters, and to improve security at home and abroad.

The SAME Jacksonville Post ( has more than 800 members. Over 100 private-sector companies participate in the Jacksonville organization as “Sustaining Members.” This year, the SAME Jacksonville Post awarded more than $30,000 in scholarships to students pursuing college educations in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“As federal funding continues to be strained, organizations like SAME play a vital role in supporting the engineering needs of our nation,” said Taylor. “I look forward to working with Jacksonville Post members to further SAME’s mission at this critical time.”

Stellar has built many federal facilities, including military exchanges (large retail stores on military bases), lodging facilities for military personnel, fuel stations, youth activities centers and recreational centers. The firm designed and built the award-winning Warrior Zone, a state-of-the-art technology center for single soldiers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Washington.

Taylor achieved the rank of Captain before retiring from the Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps last year. Before joining Stellar, he led operations for Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southeast. Headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., the 1,800-person organization is responsible for the planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance of the shore infrastructure for 16 Navy bases across the Southeast.

Prior to that tour of duty, Taylor spent nearly 10 years of his naval career with the Seabees, the Navy’s combat construction force. Of note, he was a prior Commanding Officer of U.S. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion FORTY and was most recently the Operations Officer for FIRST Naval Construction Division—the Navy’s headquarters for Seabees. There he oversaw Naval Construction Force operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and across the globe. He has been affiliated with various posts of SAME since 1988 and has been a member of the Jacksonville Post since 2009.
