In today’s fast moving world, the ability to identify a problem, formulate a solution and bring a product to market with explosive growth is what trailblazers are made of. Shawn Dougherty is a trailblazer. With her innovative talent and creativity she co-founded mophie, the #1 selling battery case manufacturer for mobile devices in North America. With Shawn as COO and founder, mophie created the first juice pack battery case for the first generation iPhone in North America and built an exclusive partnership with Apple.
Shawn created a solid business structure at mophie, allowing the company to thrive and withstand rapid growth, both in the U.S. and internationally. She is a master negotiator and raised millions of dollars in multiple rounds of capital and debt facilities. Under her guidance and strategic vision, the company grew from 3 employees in a barn in Michigan to a multimillion dollar business with 300+ employees in 5 facilities in California, Michigan, China, Hong Kong and Amsterdam.
A Michigan native, Shawn values determination and is respected for her relentless work ethic and open door policy. Always remaining focused, Shawn never shies away from a problem, rather she sees problems as opportunities for growth and elevating a brand.
As a leader she has established longstanding relationships with national and global retail partnerships and collaborations with top industry icons including Apple, Amazon, Verizon, AT&T, Best Buy, Uber and Valentino.
