Has a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications Management from Southwest Missouri State University. He was a member of Sigma Chi International Fraternity during his four years of college.

After graduating, he started in the logistics field as a Human Resource Director, Sales Representative, and Account Manager with Adcom Express/Serpo Incorporated. In December 1998, he moved to NNR Global Logistics (USA) as a Senior Sales Executive. Three years later, NNR moved Shawn to their Hong Kong office to be their China Global Account Manager. He spent three years in Asia helping many international companies move their freight more cost-effectively around the world via air and ocean transportation.

A Fortune 500 company (Emerson) was impressed with what he did, and they hired him and moved him back to St. Louis to be their Intercontinental Air Project Manager, managing a $200 million global heavyweight air spend. During the two years with Emerson, Shawn also picked up the responsibility of Small Package Project Manager, managing a $100 million global small package spend. With the knowledge he gained over his 12 years in the industry, he decided to pursue the ultimate dream.

In January of 2008, Shawn started Creative Supply Chain Solutions so that he could educate his customers on basic transportation decision-making while servicing their supply chain needs.

Most of Terry’s career was spent with a Fortune 500 company in the area of procurement. The 35 years spent with Emerson were in the area of Procurement/Supply Chain. Areas of responsibility varied from strategic functions at the corporate level to line functions at the divisional level. He spent a lot of time globally finding qualified suppliers that could meet the demands of the various companies that make up Emerson and making sure the parts were available for manufacturing, so they could produce the product on time.

In February 2007, Terry decided to retire to spend more time with his wife and take care of all those projects that never seem to get done when you’re working full time. He has agreed to take time out of his week to assist in making this company 2nd to none.
