Shawn provides wealth management and retirement income strategies for business owners, professionals, and individuals. He provides his clients the advantage of a wide range of experience that spans over thirty years in financial services.
After obtaining his BA in Economics from Southern Methodist University, Shawn entered the financial services industry in 1987. He is an Investment Advisory Representative with Ameritas Investment Corp. with Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP) designations. He holds the series 6, 7, 63, 26, and 65 securities licenses.
Shawn's entrepreneurial spirit was fueled early in life by his dad (Larry Foster), who required him to work after school from age thirteen on. He and his brother, Joe, did everything from door-to-door sales to busing tables. They built a moderately successful lawn maintenance business—Shawn's Lawns, which they later sold for a tidy profit—their first business success.
With roots in North Texas over one hundred years deep, Shawn is a believer in community involvement. He is an Eagle Scout, and he still finds a deep sense of purpose in helping people. He serves in various capacities at Watermark Community Church and Bill Glass Behind the Walls, attending Weekend of Champion events periodically. He is a Lifetime member of The North Dallas Chamber of Commerce and a member of The Rotary Club of Park Cities. In addition, he served on the board of the Plano Rotary.
Shawn is married to Kimberly. He is the proud father of Wade, Annie, and Stuart and proud stepfather of Andi and Nick.
