Lemons-To-Lemonade

Shawn's parties are not only rockin' they also raise funds for various charities and non-profits in Calgary. Take, for example, his not-to-be-missed Stompin' Stampede party at the Dean House. It's a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Calgary that raises more and more funds each year.

Other than partying, Shawn has built a great Managed Service Provider business that just got acquired this January.

What does that even mean? Well I looked it up for you! LoL

A managed service provider (MSP) is a company that remotely manages a customer's IT infrastructure and/or end-user systems, typically on a proactive basis and under a subscription model.

In this episode, Shawn talks about company culture, some warnings about security with employees working from home, and some tips on how to keep employees engaged.

Why we love him?

  • He built one of the best Managed Service Provider businesses in Calgary that was acquired just this January
  • His philanthropic initiatives have seen over 100K given back to not-for-profit and charity organizations in Calgary, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary, Kidsport, Meals on Wheels and many others.
  • His dog Felipe is a rescue from Mexico and he just turned 10!

Shawn Freeman – Fully Managed

Shawn Freeman, a born and raised Calgarian, founded TWT Group in 2008. With his background in Computer Science from the University of Calgary and Master’s Degree in Management Science from the University of Waterloo, paired with his unique ability to connect, lead and foster relationships, TWT Group rapidly became one of the best Managed Service Providers in Calgary.

Shawn has always pushed the boundaries when it comes to how his business should operate, striving to provide the best service possible while delivering the right solutions for growth to his clients. By disrupting the status quo, Shawn’s leadership style grew TWT Group to be an internationally recognized organization, attracting the attention of some of TWT’s largest competitors. In 2020, Fully Managed acquired both TWT Group and ultimately, Shawn Freeman as their Regional Vice President of Alberta.

Most notable, however, is Shawn’s dedication and passion to give back to the community. His philanthropic initiatives have seen over 100K given back to not-for-profit and charity organizations in Calgary, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary, Kidsport, Meals on Wheels and many others.
