Shawn Cheesman joined Lou-Rich in 2018. He brings 30+ years of manufacturing experience involved in most everything that would report to a General Manager including sales, product management, marketing, engineering, operations, quality, finance, strategic planning and even M&A. Shawn holds a BS in Engineering from Purdue and a MBA from the University of Minnesota.
During his time at Lou-Rich Shawn has grown to appreciate the comradery amongst the employees and the willingness to help where needed to meet our customers’ needs. He finds people looking for ways to improve. As employee owners, they have a stake in making the company successful.
In Shawn’s spare time he likes to work on home improvement projects, woodworking and spending time at the lake with his wife Sarah. His favorite time at the lake is early morning with a cup of coffee and a magazine listening to the loons sing from his deck. Shawn & Sarah have one son who lives and works in the Twin Cities. They enjoy “empty nester” roadtrips with neighbors to take in new sites and experiences in the Midwest.
