Seán is one of the longest-serving members of the Channel Mechanics team, having joined in 2011 as a Product Manager. Throughout that time, his focus has been on ensuring that Channel Mechanics continues to develop a best-in-class enterprise SaaS platform. In particular, working on Channel Enablement by optimizing multiple platform program types.

In September 2023, Seán was promoted to the position of Chief Product Officer. He brings a wealth of experience from both previous roles and his time in Channel Mechanics to the new position. He believes in continuously building strong relationships with customers, working directly with them to understand pain points and ensure platform implementation is successful.

Seán is an accomplished IT professional with 20+ years of experience across a range of sectors. He started his career in Medical Devices with Medtronic, before switching across to the Technology sector with Nortel Networks.

Seán also worked as an independent consultant for a number of years, where he honed his customer engagement skills. In these various roles, he has held numerous senior leadership positions across different functional teams, namely Product Management, Commercial Operations, Development, and QA. Seán made a conscious decision to work across various teams to broaden his knowledge of how best those teams can collaborate and to understand what each team would expect as part of the software development process.
