Shawn Comiskey

Mr. Comiskey founded Succession America with the simple objective: “provide better solutions, and provide more alternatives” to high net worth individuals, their families, and their businesses. Together with his legal and financial network of professionals, he has achieved the simple objective desired.

As a chartered accountant, with a focus in the area of income tax planning, and a pure math undergraduate degree, Mr. Comiskey’s approach is always simple and value driven.
