Shannon Gehrt is one of Primera’s leading program management experts in our Consulting division. As a big picture thinker, Shannon excels at picking up patterns in complex problems. “Taking a step back allows me to evaluate risk, think of opportunities, and prioritize solutions,” she states. “I enjoy coming up with new ideas and helping clients succeed.” With over 15 years of experience, Shannon’s background allows Primera to further expand our service offerings in the program/project management area.
Shannon studied business administration at Millikin University and earned her MBA from Olivet Nazarene University a few years after graduating with her undergrad degree. Prior to joining Primera, she worked in the oil and gas industry for a major international corporation for over 15 years. During that time, she supported several business units across various geographical locations within the realm of business account management, continuous improvement, and project/transformational delivery. Her diverse background gives her the ability to easily interact with a range of stakeholders to complete projects promptly and efficiently, while focused on earning her clients’ trust.
During her free time, Shannon and her husband enjoy supporting and cheering for their three kids through all their athletic activities. When it’s finally time for her to relax, she enjoys reading, spending time with the family’s two puppies, and hosting family and friends.
