Vaco team

Shawn Durden

Shawn graduated from the University of Georgia in ’95 and has been in the industry since ’99. From entry-level, he was quickly promoted to a sales account manager and has been a business development manager ever since. Shawn believes his biggest professional accomplishment are the long-lasting relationships he has retained — some for more than 20 years.

Outside of work, Shawn coaches his three son’s baseball, basketball, and football. He also enjoys playing golf, fishing, or any activity on the water.
