Effective October 5th, 2020, Sean Swanson joined the Spartan team as vice president of growth and strategy. With a background in building distribution networks worldwide, his new role will help Spartan develop new market expansions, market share density, and future acquisitions.
Swanson began his career in flooring with Kahrs just after graduating college. After a few years working in sales, Swanson was asked to reshape their market strategy. He obtained his MBA from the University of Central Florida, and from there he took on the challenge of developing new countries and regions for Kahrs in South America, the Middle East, and Asia. With over 10 years of experience, the Kahrs Board of Directors appointed Swanson the President of Kahrs Group America.
Swanson's success in business has come from his organizational structure, enthusiasm, and relationship-building; as well as a curiosity and willingness to understand people from different walks of life, cultures, and nationalities. He is most excited about the great “We Over Me” atmosphere at Spartan and their culture of success. The "can do" attitude and the "what if" possibilities are the unique attributes that ultimately drew him to Spartan, and he can’t wait to be a part of the organization.
When asked about Swanson’s onboarding, Spartan Surfaces CEO said “Sean has been impressive to work with over the past 10 years at Kahrs. We believe he will be a great cultural fit and his strategic vision will help shape the direction Spartan takes in the years to come.”
