Our Staff

Kevin Fitzgerald
Proprietor

Kevin was born and raised in the wilds of Flatbush, Brooklyn. His father, Patrick, founded Shawn’s in 1970. Kevin followed in his father’s footsteps and opened his own wine store in 2000. After his father’s passing in 2012, Kevin sold his shop and took the helm at Shawn’s. He immediately began a total renovation, updating the store’s interiors and bringing on a new staff of knowledgeable oenophiles and spirit specialists, reinvigorating the store for a 21st Century Park Slope. Kevin, a Fordham Law School graduate, still actively practices law when not at Shawn’s. He is married with four children, and in his spare time coaches various sports teams.

William Loob
Sales Associate

Will got his early wine education in the vineyards and wineries of Amador County, California.  Though the region is known primarily for Zinfandel, he worked alongside a winemaker who introduced him to wines from across California’s many viticultural areas and major regions of France, Italy and Germany.  Since then, Will was an editor at Wine Spectator and at Food & Wine, and has written about both wine and spirits for a number of trade magazines.  In his time away from the store, he also tutors high school students in science and math.
