Loehr brings more than 27 years of experience in automotive, heavy-vehicle, industrial, electronics, distribution, and related industries.

For 14 years prior to that he was with consulting firm Booz & Co., most recently as a partner in that firm’s engineered products and services practice and global leader of its innovation practice. Earlier in his career, from 1991 to 2000, he held senior positions at the United States Air Force Laboratory, overseeing scientific research into electronic and optoelectronic devices such as semiconductor lasers, optical detectors, and electro-optic modulators.

Loehr holds a doctorate in electrical engineering (with a specialty in semiconductor lasers) and master’s degrees in physics and electrical engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.  He is the author of several consulting-oriented papers, many refereed scientific journal articles, and the book “Physics of Strained Quantum Well Lasers.”
