Announcing Shaun Christensen, GEM Buildings, newest member of SPN's Board of Managers

Colleen Doucette

On behalf of Brian Carmer, Chairman of the Board of Steel Plus Network, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Shaun Christensen of GEM Buildings (Brigham City, Utah) as Board Member, representing Western United States.

Shaun started his 24-year steel industry career as a Junior Design Engineer with GEM Buildings. After becoming licensed in 1998, he became the Engineering Manager where he continued building his Structural Steel focused engineering foundation.

In the early 2000’s, Shaun spent 3 years in sales for GEM Buildings. A big part of this focus was networking with Fabricators and Erectors to put together projects that would need partners to succeed.

In 2005, Shaun moved back to the GEM Buildings office in Utah and moved into management over the Design and Quality sides of the company. Since 2009, he has been in the role of Director of Operations, adding the Project Management and Fabrication portions of the company to his responsibility.

“Since 2006, we have worked with SPN, and specifically the Romanian Detailing teams with Detailing Manager, Brandon Wells. We developed a system that made this detailing collaboration a core strength to GEM Buildings. It is the tie that helps GEM Buildings keep a strong commitment to SPN.” – Shaun Christensen, GEM Buildings.

We know Shaun’s experience with SPN and tremendous wealth of industry knowledge will help guide the Network in a strong and positive direction.

Please join us in welcoming Shaun to the Steel Plus Network Board of Managers.
