Vice President of Business Development
Shaun Tessmer has worked with Exemplar Financial Network since 2006. As the Manager of Advisor Services, he works directly with the representatives by processing the daily business, advertising and problem resolution needs. Exemplar’s financial advisors lean on Shaun’s friendly nature, outgoing personality and strong work ethic to help them provide the best service possible to our clients.
A native of Crystal Lake, Shaun graduated from Crystal Lake South High School and then attended Collins College in Tempe, AZ to study computer animation. He still loves to draw cartoons and create a variety of art projects from designing logos, crafts, and drawing murals. Shaun has also volunteered as a mentor in the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program in McHenry County for the last two years.
When he is not assisting our representatives and creating positive change with kids in the community, Shaun can be found hanging out with his fiancée Devon, passionately cheering for the Blackhawks, Bears or White Sox as well as biking, boating and enjoying the company of friends and family. Shaun and Devon recently added a new addition to their family and had a baby girl in February 2015. They are looking forward to see what parenthood has to offer.
