Meet the Key Team
Dr. Denis Phares
Chief Executive Officer
There was a time where Denis Phares dreamed of pursuing a career in music. Luckily for everyone at Dragonfly Energy, Phares made the “smart” choice and pursued science and technology instead. Phares first earned a BS in Physics from Villanova University and then went on to obtain his Ph.D. in Engineering from Caltech before settling into academia. As a tenured faculty member of the Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Southern California, Phares began working extensively on renewable energy technologies. He eventually left academia to follow his dream of making an innovative impact in energy storage – an area that had virtually stagnated the advancement of widespread renewable energy adoption. He began working on an MBA from the University of Nevada, Reno with the end-goal of starting a business developing battery technology. During this time Phares serendipitously met Sean Nichols, and the pair began building batteries out of their garage. There, Dragonfly Energy was born. As Chief Executive Officer of Dragonfly Energy, Phares … He also leads the company’s innovation and research and is focused on building the company’s solid foundation of technology. His mission is to see Dragonfly’s technology reach beyond mobile and recreational off-grid applications and revolutionize how we power our stationary homes and businesses. And he can still shred on guitar.
Chief Operating Officer
Sean Nichols is intensely passionate about things, especially when it comes to batteries and bikes. Every successful team needs someone like Nichols: he is sharp, dependable, and has a super-human work ethic. After gaining some of the most valuable customer-facing experience working in the mobile phone industry, Nichols moved on to working extensively with off-grid power systems as the Vice President of Sales & Operations at a major power inverter company. As Nichols worked to position that company as a world leader in inverter technologies, he simultaneously began pursuing his MBA at the University of Nevada, Reno. There, he met Denis Phares, and the duo set about building Dragonfly Energy, a company that would eventually disrupt the entire energy storage consumer market. As Chief Operating Officer at Dragonfly Energy, Nichols oversees all aspects of daily operations including manufacturing, marketing, and human resources to keep the ship sailing smoothly. He is devoted to the mission of advancing lithium battery technology, and is credited with coining the phrase “Lead is Dead.” Nichols is also credited with leading one of the most original and ground-breaking marketing campaigns in energy storage for their flagship product line, Battle Born Batteries, and continues to wage war on the lead-acid batteries market. But if you think that’s intense, you should really see his bike collection.
Customer Experience Manager
As the Customer Experience Manager, Isa supports anything and everything that touches the end consumer’s experience with Battle Born Batteries/Dragonfly Energy’s products. This means everything from the Sales Department’s backend systems to the Marketing brochures that end up in the customer’s hands. With a background in Mechanical Engineering, Isa began her time with Battle Born Batteries/Dragonfly Energy as an intern building and automating welders on the production line. She also spent time building test equipment for the batteries where she started documenting processes and standards. Her interest in improving systems and understanding how and why the company worked led her from engineering, to marketing, to project management, to business development, and now her current role where she strives to develop and support processes that help the company run more effectively and grow. The breadth of her company experience distinctly enables her to lead strategic support efforts across the company. Isa has a loud and fluffy black cat named Monkey and loves getting outdoors to enjoy the beautiful Reno/Tahoe area. She aspires to travel and live the off-grid lifestyle our products enable.
Technical Sales Specialist
Eric actually started his Battle Born Batteries experience as a customer! He became a big fan of lithium-ion batteries with both the energy independence they can give you and how they enable greater exploration off-the-grid. As avid mountain bikers, Eric and his wife loved the ability to explore new, more remote areas to camp and mountain bike without leaving the comforts of home behind.
Now as part of our Technical Sales Team, Eric brings this real-world application and product experience to answer technical questions and assist with system layout and conceptualization. We’re so happy to have Eric’s positive attitude and literal customer-mindset as part of our company culture.
Besides mountain biking and camping, Eric enjoys backcountry snowboarding, walking his dogs, cooking, and spending time with his adventurous wife.
