On Wednesday, September 12, APC was informed that one of our valued employees, Shawn Nassaney, was a passenger on one of the flights involved in the tragedy that occurred on September 11. Shawn was traveling with his girlfriend, Lynn Goodchild, en route for a Hawaiian vacation.

There is no way to truly express our emotions, especially the sorrow we feel for Shawn, his family and loved ones, and for all the lives that have been forever impacted by this terrible act.

Shawn was a Sales Team Leader who worked for APC for three years. He recently returned to the United States from a year in APC’s office in Sydney, Australia. In the time we have been honored to know him, Shawn proved himself to be an intelligent, hard working, and dedicated professional. Most importantly, Shawn was a good person and friend; someone who others enjoyed to be around. He will be remembered for his friendship and positive outlook on life. Shawn's personal and professional contributions will be sorely missed.

In his memory, APC has created the Shawn M. Nassaney Leadership Award, given quarterly to an employee who demonstrates outstanding leadership qualities. Additionally, we are establishing the Shawn M. Nassaney Memorial Scholarship Fund. The specifics of the scholarship are currently being decided upon and will be available in the near future.
