Shawn Hamill

Shawn has held progressive leadership roles in  sales, and marketing, for more than 30 years. He's quarterbacked new product start ups, and grown multi-million dollar programs, both in Canada and the US. He has built thriving business relationships with regional, national and multi-national retail organizations including Home Depot, Lowes, Rona, Home Hardware, Orgill, Canadian Tire, Kents, and Timber Mart.

He has expertise in strategic business planning, and a wealth of knowledge of the home improvement industry in Canada and the USA. He also has experience in building envelope, and structural products. 

In 2013, after a very busy year, flying throughout North America almost non stop, Shawn came to realize the value of healthy work balance. He gave up his role with a billion dollar US conglomerate, and started his own company. As the company grew, he was able to work remotely, as long as he was close to an airport, cell phone, and laptop. So he sold his home, bought a boat, and lived on it, sailing south as the the weather necessitated. He realized his success was dependent on having passions outside of his career, that equaled the passion he had for business. 

In 2023 started Ola Hana (Work Life) to help others find their path to success in the corporate world, and their lives. He is currently working towards certification with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
