Lt. Commander Scott “Yogi” Beare, U.S. Navy (Retired)
Nothing in Scott’s upbringing could have helped predict the heights this young man from the suburbs of Alexandria, Virginia would someday reach. Scott began his naval career in nuclear engineering but soon realized a higher calling literally. He set his sights on his lifelong passion of becoming a pilot earning his navy “wings of gold” in 1987. Spending his last 17 years in the military as a naval aviator, Scott flew a variety of aircraft including the F/A-18 Hornet, F-5 Tiger II, accumulating over 5000 flight hours in these high performance fighters. During his career in the United States Navy (1980-2004), Scott was a combat-decorated Naval Aviator responsible for flying the most modern carrier-based fighter aircraft flying today. He is a graduate of the famed Naval Fighter Weapons School “TOPGUN”, as well as a combat decorated veteran of Desert Storm where he was awarded two air medals and a navy commendation for valor in aerial combat.
Scott’s aviation career reached new heights in 1995 when he was personally selected for the rare opportunity to fly with the navy’s world renowned flight demonstration team, the “Blue Angels”.
Upon his retirement from the United States Navy, he was recruited by a start-up technology company where he was Vice President of Operations and Manufacturing. The company grew from start-up to $170 million in the first two years. Scott held concurrent executive responsibility for directing all engineering development, personnel team building, capital expenditures, and production management.
Most recently, Scott moved from Chicago to Westminster, SC with his wife and two children. In the meantime, he has published two books on leadership and is a frequent keynote speaker on topics of Teamwork, Leadership, and Pursuit of Excellence.
Scott received his MBA from Liberty University (4.0), and his BA from George Washington University in Washington, DC
He has authored two books on leadership:
1. Author, “The Power of Teamwork” – Simple Truths, 2006
2. Co-Author, “Yogi Beare, Values of a Blue Angel” – Majer Strategies, 2006
