Shawn Curtis

Shawn Curtis is a Senior Director at Oratium. He previously worked for healthcare and fintech software startups in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area in both Sales and Operations roles.

Before plunging into startup life, Shawn spent 12 years in the US Navy, which included numerous Strategic Deterrent Patrols on the USS Nevada (SSBN 733) and USS Kentucky (SSBN 737) as a nuclear-trained, submarine warfare officer. He graduated from Auburn University with a B.S. in Chemistry.

Shawn “converted” to Oratium’s communication methodology after his father sent him Tim’s first book in the mail and followed up several times to make sure that he read it– which he did, eventually. Shawn lives in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area with his wife and children. They enjoy rock climbing as a family and welcoming visitors to their home.
