Personal Bio

Sean Sheehan joined EMC in 1989 as a Warehouse Manager having returned from a three-year stint in Australia.  By 1992, the Milford native had moved to Operations Management where reverse logistics was a developing concept in the electronics industry. At that time very little waste & defective products were recycled and this was becoming an increasing cost for companies and an environmental headache.

Sean identified the solution to these problems and developed the unique process that became WiseTek Solutions. He had also been no stranger to setting up his own business, having started one of the first successful internet au pair agencies with his wife Orla.  Today, Sean continues to bring WiseTek Solutions on a growth trajectory across the globe.
