MOORESTOWN, N.J. – Cmdr. Philip Mlynarski relieved Capt. Scott Davis as the 14th commanding officer of AEGIS Technical Representative (AEGIS TECHREP) in Moorestown, N.J., July 17.
Davis assumed command in 2015 and during his tenure created a leadership development program, overhauled the command’s mentoring approach, and instilled a command philosophy. He provided his Sailors with more test time on the newest AEGIS baselines and championed innovative ways of doing business with commercial entities, including a cooperative “One-Team” partnership for faster certification and integration of personnel into the Agile development process.
“As I look back and reflect on what my vision for this tour would be, I believe they have come to pass and are reflected in the organization’s culture and performance,” said Davis. “I can say with confidence that while there is work to be done, the challenges have been met and largely overcome due in no small part to your faith and trust in me and the leadership team and your hard work and dedication to the mission.”
Davis graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering and holds a Master of Systems Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School. He entered the Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) and his shore and sea duties include USS Durham (LKA 114), USS Fort McHenry (LSD 43), USS Peterson (DD 969), Supervisor of Shipbuilding Portsmouth, Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS), Missile Defense Agency (MDA), and multiple rotations to Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Port Hueneme.
