Sean Shannon has 25+ years of executive leadership experience, and now heads up Expedia for Canada, Latin America, and Australia / NZ
Sean brings to Expedia many years of marketing and brand management experience at both new and old economy companies.
He was on the Executive Committee for the Marketing Hall of Legends. He led the marketing team for WorldPreferred.com Inc. as Vice President, Marketing and Customer Relations. Prior to WorldPreferred.com Inc., Sean held a number of executive positions including Vice President, Business Development for Molson Canada. He started his career at Proctor & Gamble.
Sean does a presentation as the head of Expedia in Brazil.
Leading the Canadian arm of Expedia means Sean travels regularly from Toronto to cities such as Seattle, Dallas, Montreal and San Francisco. He does about 18 trips a year. Whenever he flies, he must bring as carry-ons some photos of his kids and his BlackBerry.
Sean has a few interesting travel stories. His most memorable airplane seat mate was the National Hockey League star Alexander Ovechkin, on a flight from Turin, Italy. He got him to sign something for his kids, and they were more excited to see the signed hat than Sean.
His most eventful business trip was to New Orleans on Fat Tuesday -- the last day of Mardi Gras. He flew out of Toronto early and 18 hours later he was back in his house. Needless to say he struggled to put the key into the door.
Sean's favourite out-of-town restaurant is Cincinnati's Jimmy D's steakhouse. In terms of hotels, he was once upgraded to a royal suite at Vancouver's Pan Pacific. There was a portrait of Diana and Charles in the suite, and Sean claims the suite was bigger than his house. Unfortunately Sean had to leave at 7 a.m. so he got to sleep like a royal but not do much else.
Sean graduated from The University of Western Ontario's Richard Ivey School of Business with Honours in Business Administration.
Bidders on this auction must be able to get to Toronto on their own if they wish to meet Sean in person.
