When Shawn Trisler joined the IT Security team in 2017 after retiring from the U.S. Navy, he hoped to find a place where he could continue to feel purposeful and be involved in meaningful work.

MNK’s mission of “Managing Complexity. Improving Lives.” inspired Shawn then and continues to drive his commitment to his work today. “It’s important to me to work with people who share my values, and I’m lucky that I get to work with people who all share the same passion for improving patient lives.”

Shawn works with his colleagues to develop unique ways to leverage existing technology capabilities, while integrating new digital tools, to streamline and improve MNK’s tactical and strategic implementation of programs that push MNK’s boundaries of what is possible. Together, the team reaches new goals and makes a difference daily for internal teams and patient communities.

Shawn shared, “There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish together as a team. It feels like we make the impossible possible on a daily basis because we’re deeply committed to patients.”

Shawn not only works with the IT team but also works closely with other departments across the organization and his efforts are being recognized.

“Shawn is patient and extremely collaborative with each and every MNK department, working tirelessly to ensure everyone’s job – and technology behind them – is as seamless as possible,” explained one colleague.

He shared that a valuable lesson he’s learned from his colleagues at MNK is that, “no matter the department or job title, each employee plays a pivotal role in the overall success of the company and in making its goals a reality.”
