Mike Aneshansley  - 2012

Mike Aneshansley graduated from SWOSU in 1969 with degrees in physics and mathematics after graduating from Clinton High School in 1965. He joined the U.S. Navy to attend the Naval Nuclear Power School, which he completed in 1970. He had various assignments in the U.S. Navy before being hired by Entergy, Inc., in 1977 to be training manager at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Station in Port Gibson (MS). He became operations manager in 1979.

Aneshansley was then hired by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission as an inspector for nuclear power stations in the United States and, in 1981, he joined Quadrex, a management consulting firm that provided services to nuclear power plants across the United States.

It was in 1983 that he co-founded ENERCON to provide consulting services for the startup and operation of commercial nuclear power plants. From three people and four clients, the company quickly grew to a diversified, multi-disciplined company with many clients. In 1989, the company expanded its portfolio of services to include environmental and industrial services. In 2005, the founders sold the remaining stock and retired from active management of the company. Aneshansley remains a director and consultant to the management team.

Aneshansley has been married to Vicki (Roniger) Aneshansley, a 1969 SWOSU graduate, for 44 years. They have two grown children and three grandchildren.
