10 to Watch: Shawn Campion

With his company landing at No. 27 on A—list of the region’s 50 fastest-growing companies, Integro Technologies President Shawn Campion has moved his firm into a new $3.2 million headquarters in downtown Salisbury.
Integro built the 41,800-square-foot Salisbury Business Center at 301 S. Main St. and serves as the main tenant, with more than 10,000 square feet of office space for lease.
Campion also has dipped a toe in turbulent local political waters, blaming Rowan County commissioners for a lack of business development and coming to the defense of the Economic Development Commission after Executive Director Robert Van Geons was criticized by two commissioners for his agency’s recruitment efforts.
Integro’s new location is more than double the size of the previous headquarters on North Lee Street, providing space for the company to increase manufacturing capacity.
