Uncommon Personalities: Meet Sean Doherty

October 25, 2013
Sean Doherty | UncommonGoods
Sean Doherty, UncommonGoods Inventory and Drop Ship Manager
My hometown is…
Annapolis, MD

My favorite thing about managing Inventory & Drop Ship operations is…
I enjoy working with my teams to solve problems that impact our customers. Both ITC and Drop Ship work behind the scenes to make sure our customers have an excellent order experience. I’m very proud of the work they do each day.

I’m inspired by…
2 things: my fiancé and music.

An uncommon fact about me…
I was born in Honolulu Hawaii. Aloha!

When I’m not working I’m probably…
Throwing a multi-course dinner party for friends, playing a concert in the East Village, hitting a nasty boast on the squash court, skiing fresh powder in Colorado, or enjoying a crab feast with my family in Maryland. Yup, that’s about it.

The word that best describes me is…

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
The power of collaboration. All of the teams at UG continue to amaze me with their willingness to work together. It’s a great place to be.

Would you rather…Own every album you’ve ever loved in a mint condition vinyl collection OR get to see any musical act (still together or not, living or dead) of your choice in concert?
Seeing as my entire music catalog is stored on my Mac and IPhone, I would have to go with seeing Led Zeppelin live with Bonzo. I would ask that Robert Plant actually hit the high notes on the chorus of Over the Hills and Far Away. None of that octave lower shenanigans that he pulled in the mid Seventies. I won’t have it.
