At Brown Davis, we believe the insurance industry can be better and know from personal experience that insurance and insurtech companies deserve better when it comes to talent access and recruitment.
Failed are the executive recruitment efforts that rest on outdated “Rolodex” or “established networks.” Failed are recruitment processes that diminish the employer’s brand by leaving candidates stranded.
Brown Davis was founded to be a change agent in the insurance industry and make a positive impact through people. We bring a fresh perspective and approach to the talent acquisition process focused on diverse, emerging, and progressive talent.
Shawn is a former senior insurance executive with 16 years of experience leading sales, marketing, distribution, product GTM, third-party administered operations, and talent acquisition at both large publicly traded and mutual insurance companies.
As a hiring manager and candidate of executive searches, he was dissatisfied with the performance, service, and experience of working with other executive search firms.
With a creative, competitive and entrepreneurial spirit, he saw an opportunity to better support the industry by helping insurance and insurtech companies connect their business strategy with the right people strategy.
