Dennis Taylor
Dennis has more than 15 years of public and private sector legal and financial experience.
Dennis's public sector experience includes serving as Vice Chancellor for Administration for the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission and Community and Technical College System and as Chief of Staff for the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts. As Vice Chancellor, Dennis coordinated finance and facilities, legal services, financial aid, human resources, technology, and other functions for 21 public higher education institutions with total budgets exceeding $1 billion annually. He also served as the System's primary liaison to the West Virginia Legislature for which he assembled appropriation requests and drafted legislation.
Among other accomplishments, Dennis completed a Legislatively-mandated study of higher education capital funding and facilities maintenance that produced legislation overhauling both systems, facilitated the sale of more than $250 million in taxpayer-supported higher education revenue bonds, oversaw the legal and financial separation of West Virginia's two- and four-year institutions, and developed a performance-based funding system for community and technical colleges.
Dennis's private sector experience includes serving as an associate with the law firm of Goodwin & Goodwin LLP and general counsel for Tyler Mountain Water Co., Inc., as well as operating his own business DCT Advisors LLC. His legal experience is wide-ranging and includes transactional work, higher education law, employment law, and general litigation. He also served as a judicial law clerk for U.S. District Judges Joseph R. Goodwin and Robert C. Chambers.
Dennis is very active in his community. He currently is Treasurer of Covenant House, which serves the homeless; and a member of the West Virginia Library Commission, which supports West Virginia's public libraries and for which he is chairing the search for a new Secretary; the West Virginia Civics Literacy Council, which promotes civic engagement; and Curtains Up Players, which produces musical theater. He also is active in both high school and college speech and debate where he frequently assists in running tournaments.
Dennis graduated magna cum laude from Washington & Lee University School of Law, where he was Managing Editor of the Washington & Lee Law Review and a member of the Order of the Coif. He also holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from Marshall University where he periodically serves as an adjunct professor teaching legal communication. He is licensed to practice law in West Virginia.
