Meet Dan Hanshaw
Meet Dan Hanshaw, VP of Business Development at PREE Labs since August of 2019. Dan has been a long-time consumer of cannabis and was excited to jump at the opportunity to join the new, growing recreational market here in Oregon.
He says, “I love working in the cannabis industry because we have a chance to change the way our country views ‘weed’, especially Oregon cannabis. I get to meet customers that are real people trying to make a living in an industry that they are passionate about. I also enjoy traveling across the state to visit places I’ve never been to before.”
A PNW native, Dan grew up in Spokane, WA, moved to the Portland area in ’85 for college and has called the area home ever since. He’s been married for almost 25 years and is a proud father of three daughters and one beautiful granddaughter. Prior to joining our team, Dan spent roughly 20 years in the electrical industry, initially working in Westinghouse manufacturing processes in Seattle before moving into a sales role in Portland.
He’s also dabbled in the food industry in sales positions with both US Foodservice and Sysco. When he’s not in the lab or visiting our customers, you’re likely to find Dan golfing, boating, kayaking, fishing, or hanging with his best buds. He’s also an avid fan of college athletics and follows Oregon State football religiously — go Beavers!
