Meet the hopeful and rising star National Sales Manager at Lakeside & IPD, Shea Ahlsted. Although he is a choice contender for Salesman of the Year 2021, you won’t easily find him in the office. Shea’s trusty two step strategy of “maintain + gain” keeps him busy at the home office and on the road. When he is not working, you can find this former United States Marine spending time with his family, reading, or playing tennis.

As an indigenous beach bum, Shea grew up in the waters of Virginia Beach and Nags Head, North Carolina. He eventually left the coast in pursuit of higher education and received his bachelor’s degree from James Madison University and his master’s from THE Ohio State. Shea has been dating his wife Emily for twelve years and they are loving life together while learning how to raise their two boys, Jack and Macon. Contact Shea if you are searching for a catalyst to spark your business growth and ignite the future of your company.
