BD Manager Joins United Way Campaign
Shawn Brennan, HR Manager at BD in Canaan, has volunteered to serve as an Ambassador Co-Chair of the Manufacturing and Construction Division for the United Way of Northwest Connecticut’s annual fall campaign.
Shawn holds a Bachelor's degree in Human Resources from St. Leo University and has a dual Master's degree from Troy State University in Public Administration and Public Personnel Management. He has also received his certification as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and is a certified Six Sigma Green Belt. A retired Veteran of the United States Air Force who’s been with BD since his retirement in 2001, Shawn moved to Connecticut from Sumter, South Carolina in January of this year. He is in the process of relocating his family (wife –Tess, 2 dogs, a cat, and his Yellow Naped Parrot) to the Torrington area. Shawn was active in the Sumter community and plans to continue that legacy here.
Shawn said, "I've been an active supporter of United Way for as long as I can remember. I am especially impressed by the volume and diversity of programs the Northwest division has to offer. I’m looking forward to helping them accomplish their goals in the years to come.”
United Way Director Stephanie Barksdale said, “I’m delighted that Shawn’s joined our campaign effort. He brings a fresh perspective to our campaign and a lot of southern hospitality.”
