Shenar Wood

Founder & CEO

shenar wood

Shenar has lived in the Charlotte Metro area for over 5 years with his family. He is originally from Georgia, but as veteran, he has lived all over from Enterprise, AL to San Jose, CA. With a love for veterans, he had an idea 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 handout, 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 earned his bachelor’s degree from Kennesaw State University and earned his MBA from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.

Shenar enjoys spending time with his wife Isabel, his daughter Lena, and their dog, Carlitos. You can usually find him and the family together at their local gym, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gym, or on Sunday’s at Moments of Hope Church.
