DBT40 Honoree: Rashad Taylor of New Castle County government


AGE: 36
TITLE: Deputy Chief Administrative Officer
COMPANY: New Castle County Government
WORKS IN: New Castle

What the nominator said:

“Rashad successfully managed Matthew Meyer’s campaign for the Democratic Party nomination for New Castle County Executive against three-term incumbent Tom Gordon, and that victory in 2016 achieved “˜what many thought was close to impossible,’ according to The News Journal and what the governor described to me as the greatest political upset in Delaware since Joseph Biden won his first Senate race in 1972. From day one, Rashad was the architect and the CEO of this effort.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:


Biggest break:

“The opportunity to work for Congressman John Lewis.”

Two words that best describe you:

“I’m a “˜greater fool’ – someone with the perfect blend of self-delusion
and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed.”

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“The time you set aside for yourself to relax and rejuvenate must be sacred and uninterrupted. Adequate time away from work will make you more productive when you return to work.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“Get in the way and get into good trouble.”

In one sentence, define success:

“Achieving this Delaware Business Times 40 Under 40 award with four years to spare!”
