Our last EVP is now our COO. Since inception in 1993, SEM has had 6 Executives in this group with two retired. Shaun joined SEM on 10/10/2005. After a football career and graduating from the University of South Carolina, Shaun entered the Mortgage Industry as a Loan Officer in our call center and eventually worked his way through the ranks to Office Manager and then Senior Vice President. With a fundamental understanding of our business and the respect from those around him, he took on our newest strategies with passion and commitment. Shaun now works directly with Cal Haupt, Chairman and CEO on SEM’s Social and Media Strategies including various projects with future innovation implications for our industry.
“Shaun is a testament to passion, smart work, and commitment to a common belief. With SEM, Shaun has accomplished more than most in a 30-year career. Instead of moving around like many in our industry, Shaun focused on learning and his skill set. As a result, he made himself invaluable and a trustworthy teammate / large shareholder. I look forward to sharing what I know so he can successfully take on more responsibility in the future. Shaun is not just a smart charismatic guy, he is a good friend and a role model of how to evolve a fantastic career.” Cal Haupt, Chairman and CEO, Southeast Mortgage of Georgia, Inc.
