Dana Mehnert

President, Communication Systems, L3Harris Technologies

Years in current role: 3.5

What do you enjoy most about your role?

We have an outstanding team of highly creative and dedicated people with a strong connection to the mission of our defense and public safety customers across the world. Working with this great team and our customers is what I enjoy most.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?

Getting through the continuing COVID crisis and the resulting global supply chain disruptions it has caused that impacted many of our suppliers, including those in Rochester and throughout the state.

Thankfully, it looks like we’re moving past COVID-19 and it’s nice to see people collaborating in person again. Our talented team, along with our partners, have worked tirelessly to address the supply chain challenges and mitigate the impact on our customers.

What has been your organization’s biggest success over the past year?

Our team’s biggest success has been effectively working together through an unprecedented global supply chain disruption and continuing to meet our commitments to our customers. We were able to work through these challenges and deliver on our commitments to support our customers in the U.S. Department of Defense, state and local government and our allies throughout the world.

Another great success has been our continued commitment to build an inclusive culture where all of our employees feel valued and empowered to do their best work.
