About Us

Purposeland was re-launched by Shane Haggerty in 2017, though the consultancy has been operational since 2011. In that time, the company has worked with more than 30 clients assisting with projects that include marketing, PR, design, social media, video production, content marketing, admissions and enrollment, and workshops and training.

Our Team:

Shane Haggerty, Owner + President

Shane Haggerty has spent 20 years working in two industries–marketing/PR and education. A former teacher and administrator turned marketing professional, Haggerty has led award-winning strategic campaigns for school districts, government agencies, national conferences, businesses, startups, and more.

He has helped clients earn coverage in local media, statewide media and national media (The Today Show was certainly a highlight!) and his campaigns have proven, measurable results towards increasing school enrollments, applications, and registrations.

He has been asked to present workshops throughout the country and is currently serving on the National School Public Relations Association Executive Board.

Shawn Linder, Creative Director

Shawn Linder has spent his 20-year career as an in-demand graphic designer, working for a top agency in Cincinnati for more than a decade. He ventured to the West Coast to work for Cranium before starting his own freelance business, where he serves a variety of clients.

During his career, he has completed projects for national clients like Kroger, Gap, Speedway, and Holland America Line. At Purposeland, since 2011, he has worked on projects for clients like Lorain County JVS, RAMTEC, Tolles, Apollo Career Center, the Ohio Department of Education, and more.
