MORRIS PLAINS, NJ, September 30, 2021 – Weichert Workforce Mobility, one of the world’s leading providers of corporate relocation services, announced that Shawn Sweeney has joined the company as Director, Technology Solutions.
In this capacity, Sweeney will play a key role in strengthening Weichert’s technology value proposition and accelerating the company’s ongoing digital transformation and new product development.
Serving as a liaison between existing and prospective clients and Weichert’s IT group, he will help to refine and advance the user experience, providing the insight they need to get the most out of Weichert’s continuously evolving technology tools. He will also spearhead the relentless innovation of these tools to ensure that they reflect the voice of the customer.
“As we continue to advance bold, next-generation technology solutions like our Stevie-Award winning SMARTRIP compliance tool and our Sumplicity lump sum app, we want to be sure that the functionality aligns with client and customer goals and truly empowers them,” said Stewart McCardle, Weichert’s SVP of Technology. “Going forward, Shawn will provide that valuable link between our development team and the end user to help us deliver an experience that is truly ‘mobility their way.'”
Sweeney has over 25 years of workforce mobility experience with a focus on software development and marketing. He most recently served as Senior Vice President at Orion Mobility. In his new role, he will report to Jim Schneider, Executive Vice President.
“Shawn’s combined experience in workforce mobility and technology leadership roles will help drive the architecture of new products and solutions that meet the fast-evolving needs of the marketplace,” said Schneider. “We’re excited to have him on the team.”
“Throughout my career, I’ve realized that clients have a checklist of things they want from their relocation technology, but they rarely leverage a system’s full capabilities,” said Sweeney. “An important part of my role will be not only be coaching clients on our tech and how they can benefit from it, but also ensuring that our technology roadmap continues to reflect their needs and our Company Belief in winning outcomes.”
