Shenar Wood

CEO & Founder

dyneteck-shenar-wood

Shenar moved to Charlotte a little over 2 years ago, with his family and a simple idea. The idea was to progress electrical infrastructure throughout the Carolinas by offering veterans the tools to help fuel economic growth in the community. As a veteran, Shenar is very passionate about the idea of giving back to those who have served, not with a hand out, but with a hand up.

Shenar learned the utility trades to help provide for his college tuition just before joining the military after 9/11. Today, nearly half of Dynetek’s employees are veterans.

Shenar enjoys spending time with his wife Isabel, his daughter Lena, and their dog, Chico. You can usually find them on the weekends at the local parks, arts and craft shows around town, or at church.
