Joined Columbia in 2003   

As president of Columbia, Shaun’s leadership and commitment to delivering exceptional results goes beyond daily operations to represent the core values: teamwork, empowerment, and understanding that define Columbia. With over 20 years of construction experience, Shaun is known and respected for his approachable, responsive, and empowering management style. Shaun graduated from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and he started his career working in the field. Quickly building a reputation as a forward thinking and dedicated team player, he moved to project management.  Shaun joined Columbia in 2003 and has held a variety of supervisory and management positions including seven years as Vice President of Columbia’s Interiors Division. Over that time, Shaun successfully grew the Interiors Division through an economic recession into a prosperous and productive team that has worked in over 150 buildings in Downtown Boston and the Greater Boston area. His commitment to inspiring and leading others continues outside of the office as a member of the Dana Farber Leadership Council. Today, overseeing all business operations including strategic development, team building, and project leadership at Columbia, Shaun understands how to turn a big picture vision into reality through relentless planning, systematic collaboration and strong communication. 

A proud dad of thee boys, Shaun has had the honor of coaching hundreds of kids in variety of youth sports including football, baseball and basketball and he absolutely loves it.  For Shaun, having a positive impact on the younger generation is extremely rewarding. An exceptional athlete himself, in 2018 Shaun was inducted into the Farmington High school Hall of fame, where he played four sports for the Tigers (cross country, soccer, basketball, baseball), earning All-Southeastern League honors in all four. We may be biased, but we think he is giving Belichick a run for his money in the coaching department!
