Shawn Nason
Disruption Navigator at MOFI


Shawn Nason, founder & CEO of MOFI and the Nason Group ecosystem, is on a personal mission to disrupt as many industries as possible. To do this, he’s in relentless pursuit of putting the consumer’s voice first and infiltrating tired, outdated systems with bold, game-changing ideas, mindsets, and heartsets.

Shawn creates strategic disruption by combining the principles of consumer-centered design with radical relationships and a full-court press approach to making epic sh*t happen. He channels his frustration with the status quo into fighting for systemic change and inspiring others to disrupt with him. He’s the person in the room who is undeterred by convention, unafraid to dream big, and unable to settle for mediocrity.

Prior to launching MOFI, Shawn led the Healthways Innovation Living Lab, served as the chief innovation officer for Xavier University, and worked in the innovation area at Humana. He also spent six years at The Walt Disney Company in various capacities within Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Cruise Line. He’s the author of two books, The Power of YES! in Innovation (2017) and Kiss Your Dragons: Radical Relationships, Bold Heartsets, & Changing the World (2021), and the host of The Combustion Chronicles podcast.
