General Manager, Hawkeye Industries, LLC
United States


Shelly Bennion currently serves as General Manager for Hawkeye Industries. Hawkeye Industries is a manufacturing sales and marketing company focused on global distribution of composite process consumables. After ten years in the educational services sector, Shelly shifted focus to family and non-profit work – particularly work focused on improving financial stability for women through employment services. An offer of remote based work - a novelty in 2009 - piqued Shelly’s curiosity and she stepped into the wild and wonderful world of composites. Fourteen years of experience at Hawkeye has afforded Shelly the opportunity to flex operational structure, leading to improved processes, customer and employee satisfaction, and sustained market growth. Shelly also serves as the Marketing and Communications Committee Chair with the American Composites Manufacturing Association. The creative energy and vast opportunities within composites inspire Shelly and compel her to create space for and elevate women in the industry.
