Director of Sales
As the Director of Sales, Shawn is responsible for generating biodiesel sales and maintaining existing customer relationships while developing a new customer base. Shawn monitors changing supply and demand trends, economic indicators and market competition. He began his career at HERO BX as a Lead Operations Technician, working through the initial startup of the biodiesel plant and then managing the daily operations of the plant prior to being promoted to Director of Sales.
A native of Corry, PA, Shawn earned a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology and Operations Management from the Pennsylvania State University. After college, Shawn returned to the family 200 head dairy farm as the 4th generation to run the farm and did so for 10 years. Shawn is more of a gentleman farmer these days with just vegetable gardens and 20 fruit trees. He says the best advice he’s ever been given is to keep your word and carry through with what you say you are going to do – in business or life in general.
“I treat customers with respect and value their input and opinion. Building a relationship with customers beyond simply the business side of things earns their trust and respect.” ~ Shawn Triscuit
