Dear IEC Members & Friends,
Please welcome Shawn Dougherty, Founder and CEO at EXOIO, as our next confirmed founding member of the International Executive Council (IEC). We have included her bio and LinkedIn profile below for your review.
Shawn co-founded mophie, the #1 selling battery case manufacturer for mobile devices in North America. As COO and founder, she helped mophie create the first juice pack battery case for the first generation iPhone in North America and built an exclusive partnership with Apple. With time, they created a solid business structure, allowing the company to thrive and withstand rapid growth, both in the U.S. and internationally. Mophie raised millions of dollars in multiple rounds of capital and debt facilities.
Under Shawn’s guidance and strategic vision, the company grew from 3 employees in a barn in Michigan to a multi-million 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, she 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, Product Red, Valentino, and Supreme.
Shawn is passionate about developing products. Prior to mophie, she started her career at Stryker Medical, then relocated to Arizona and worked for Software Logistic an Apple 3D party partner to bring the StarMax Computer to Market.
After that, she led product development for several notable audio tech-based companies, including Directed Electronics where she led the development for brands like Orion, ADST and Precision Power. Shawn currently resides in Newport Beach, California with her wife and two daughters. She also has two Cavalier King Charles, named Sunny and Cali.
