About Sean

Sean started innovating with software products at 11 years old on his 8-Bit Commodore Vic-20 in the 1980’s and he never stopped. He studied aviation electronics working on F-14 Tomcats in the Navy, molecular genetics at the University of Rochester, and earned an MBA from the Simon School of Business in 2006.

Most of his experience, however, has come from over two decades of working in the trenches with his clients building innovative software products that move, touch, and inspire the world. He is most fortunate to have the privilege of leading the team that is ITX. ITX has built a passionate group of inspired technologists and artists that produce magic every day for their clients.

Sean teaches MBA candidates at the William E. Simon School of Business and speaks to leadership teams around the world on the intersection of innovation, culture, and empathy. He has developed and organized “The Momentum Framework,” a set of contextual models that demonstrate the patterns, context, and language of successful leadership.

His work has led to him earning recognition and accolades such as the 2019 Vistage “New Speaker of the Year” and the 2019 Trust Across America “Top Thought Leader in Trust” awards among many others.
