The Surf Force Team!

Say Hi!

Shaun Holmes
COO at TaskFeed
Shaun is the COO of Taskfeed and has participated in the Salesforce ecosystem for over 10 years. Shaun started Surf Force in 2016 when over 700 people lost their jobs in a Welsh town called Aberavon, where he surfs regularly, and he wanted to help. He knew that these people would be looking for new opportunities for work and that the Salesforce eco-system was desperate for people to work as administrators, coders, developers, architects and consultants and that, thanks to Trailhead, the barrier to entry to these roles is far lower than most people expect. The event was a huge success and now runs annually.
