Local businessman, civic leader and community activist Terry Shannon has been named special projects coordinator for the Red River Region Business Incubator.
A Paris native and well known member of the the community, Shannon is a perfect fit for such a high profile position, said R3bi Director Hank Betke.
“A volunteer of Terry’s caliber with his history of entrepreneurship further enhances our ability to grow our services, not only to our incubator clients but to the business community at large,” Betke said. “Terry is being tasked with synergizing the business sector by instituting training and leadership programs targeted to start-up and existing businesses.”
Shannon’s background includes serving in a number of civic organizations including the Paris and Lamar Chamber of Commerce, Salvation Army, Lions Club and Rotary International exchange. He is also a past president of the Paris Board of Realtors and Paris Jaycees.
He recently returned to Paris after a 20-plus year stint in the yellow page publishing business in Louisiana and Arkansas. He said he is pleased to be home with his family and friends.
Shannon invited anyone wishing to exchange ideas, motivate or get motivated and inspired to check the R3bi website for upcoming brown bag lunches designed to motivate and stimulate the owners and employees.
