Meet Shawn, The Proven Leader
May 19, 2021
“There continues to be something new to learn each day, and I love that.”
Shawn has built a storied career at StyleCraft Homes over the past seven years. As a Project Manager, he picked up prestigious recognitions, including Employee of the Year (2020), Community of the Month, and StyleCraft’s Distinguished Builder award. That’s one crowded trophy case! Now Shawn is embarking on a new challenge, being among the first to hold the title of Area Construction Manager. Pulling from his wealth of experience and knowledge of the StyleCraft culture, Shawn is now training Project Managers to be successful in his former role.
When Shawn is not hustling to make sure all is right with his communities, he enjoys visiting RVA’s breweries, hitting the beach, and hanging out with family and friends.
DESCRIBE YOUR LIVE UP MOMENT — THE MOMENT YOU KNEW STYLECRAFT WAS RIGHT FOR YOU
“During the first couple weeks I started, every day was a new adventure, and I didn’t have to sit at a desk all day. I enjoyed building relationships with the trade partners and assisting in building homes for our customers.”
DESCRIBE YOUR TYPICAL DAY
“My office is my truck. I drive from community to community, including Greenwich Walk Townhomes & Villas, Iron Mill Townhomes & Villas, and Townes at Notting Place — the ones I oversee. A large part of my typical day includes supporting and training each of my Project Managers.
In my role as Area Construction Manager, I am constantly problem solving — when those 100 problems come my way in a moment, I’ve learned to attack each problem one at a time and in order of importance. Learning those problem-solving tactics has better equipped me to handle future issues efficiently and strategically. Learning more and more each day has helped me get to where I am with StyleCraft today.”
YOU CAN NEVER SHOW UP AT STYLECRAFT WITHOUT…
“Having a high sense of urgency and passion in what you do.”
AND THE HIGHLIGHT IS…
“I get excited when my customers close on their new home, and I get to see how happy they are with their overall StyleCraft experience.”
