With 3+ decades of hands-on experience launching, growing and implementing profit-driven hotel operating platforms, Shawn is the latest talent asset at KSL Resorts. He is eager to bring his previous experiences with industry leading hospitality companies to grow market share and enhance the guest experience at the KSLR east coast portfolio.
Shawn developed his passion for the hospitality business at 14 working in restaurants then eventually moving up through the F&B ranks at Hyatt Hotels & Resorts and Loews Hotels. He was the 2012 Tourism Professional of the Year for Miami Dade County and has been at the helm of many hotels receiving top awards throughout the industry.
With travel and dining at the top of his leisure time list, it is no surprise that Shawn is a natural hospitality executive. He enjoys taking his wife and two teenage sons to experience new sights and tastes with him and especially loves exploring sipping a fine bourbon.
