Shannon founded what is now SD Group in 1994, as a sole operator. Today, the business is 75 -strong, working with a range of blue-chip brands and private clients, including RMS, Transport for NSW, Downer Mouchel, VBA, Hansen Yuncken, Taylor’s Construction, Hutchinson and Australian Equity.

Qualified and licensed in building, carpentry and demolition, Shannon has been a driving force for many of SD Group’s largest and most challenging projects. These range from building Australia’s largest whiskey factory and accompanying factories, to completing a three-level 18 factory development on a 25-metre sloping site.

A values-based leader, Shannon’s approach is to work hard and learn from every challenge. His personal commitment to his clients, colleagues, employees, suppliers is four-fold: respect, commitment honesty and trust.

Family, spiritual development, health and wellbeing, along with work, are what’s most important to Shannon. In his spare time, he enjoys participating in family activities, travel and site seeing.
