“I consider it a privilege to work with such a great group of professionals at StormGeo. I really enjoy being a part of the cutting-edge work at the core of StormGeo's focus – bringing weather expertise to bear upon valued business solutions for our clients.”
Shawn rejoined the Houston office in 2016 as Business Development Project Manager. Leveraging a breadth of professional experience – including aviation meteorology, digital and mobile product development, broadcast meteorology, business development, and strategy development – Shawn is constantly on the lookout for the nexus between the state-of-the-science of weather forecasting and the opportunity to create business solutions StormGeo's customers need to maximize profits.
Shawn led in the conceptualization and launch of StormGeo’s inaugural digital map offerings, its state-of-the-art broadcast video production and streaming capabilities, and the enhanced StormWatch storm-based severe weather warnings. More recently, Shawn has been at the vanguard of StormGeo’s product and service innovation efforts, identifying and leveraging opportunities to apply machine-learning, advanced analytics, in situ weather observations, and probabilistic forecasts in the creation of the next generation of value for StormGeo’s clients.
Shawn works across all of StormGeo’s business units to help develop innovative services through both internal team and external client interactions, creating tailored solutions that fit customers' needs.
“There is nothing as professionally satisfying as working with a client to capture their unique business challenges, conceptualize with the client the solutions to address those challenges, and then seeing the client respond with ‘Yes! That’s it!’”
