MUNCIE, IND – DD DANNAR, LLC, (DANNAR) is pleased to announce the addition of Shannon Henry, an experienced manufacturing leader who recently joined the DANNAR team and has been named Program Manager of the Mobile Power Station® (MPS). She joined DANNAR in September 2016.
Shannon’s primary responsibility is the day-to-day management of operations and manufacturing deliverables for the MPS production life cycle, helping to drive planning and management of project milestones, dependencies and risk management.
Shannon has been in the manufacturing sector for nearly 15 years and holds a Master’s of Business Administration degree from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. She was formerly the General Manger for Muncie Transit Supply, with full responsibility of its transit bus parts division, overseeing a team of 50 people and focusing on maximizing revenue and margin for that business.
She also spent nearly 10 years with Autocar, working her way from the production floor to a management position in sales and marketing. In her spare time, Shannon is an aspiring amateur photographer.
“Shannon has been an outstanding addition to our team,” DANNAR founder and CEO Gary Dannar said. “We are benefitting from her manufacturing experience in the truck and bus industries, as well as her project management skills. She will be a great leader of the product development life cycle of the MPS moving forward.”
The MPS is equipped with a high-performance electric drivetrain capable of pulling over 700,000 pounds and requires nearly zero maintenance. The MPS is powered exclusively by two high-capacity, lithium-ion battery packs. For emergency response, the MPS can carry a 60 kW diesel generator capable of providing off-grid electricity and re-charging power to the batteries.
