President and Chief Operations Officer
Dennis is committed to the journey.
He left a dairy farm to join GM at 18. He moved his family to China in 1996 to manage an assembly line populated by workers who had NEVER DRIVEN a car; they had to be taught to drive the cars off the end of the line. He discovered a new planet at Saturn in Tennessee. He managed a plant in Saltillo employing 5,000 workers. He trained in lean manufacturing principles, and implemented them everywhere he went.
Like anyone brought up on a farm, Dennis loves to work, and that trait comes in handy when you need to launch a car. He recharges his batteries by skydiving, skiing black diamonds, and scuba diving in the Red Sea.
Dennis is thrilled to take the leap and plant the landing here at Karma.
