Harris named Dana Mehnert president of the company’s $1.9 billion communication systems business, reporting to Harris Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) William M. Brown.

Mehnert succeeds Chris Young, who is retiring following a 36-year career at Harris, Exelis and ITT. Harris acquired Exelis in May of 2015 and named Young president of the communication systems business at that time.

“Chris has done an outstanding job leading this important business,” said Brown. “I want to thank him for his efforts and wish him well in his retirement.”

Mehnert is a 33-year Harris employee and most recently served as senior vice president and chief global business development officer for the company, overseeing initiatives to drive revenue growth across the company’s three business segments. Previously, he served as president of the RF communications business for 10 years, establishing Harris as a leading provider of tactical communication solutions and defense and public-safety networks.
