About Shawn

Shawn Horwitz co-founded The Alliant Company (TAC) in 1997 and later acquired sole ownership in 2019. TAC operated successfully for over two decades until its sale in 2021 to Walker and Dunlop Inc., one of the largest Agency Lenders in the United States. As the parent company to Alliant Capital, a leading syndicator of tax credits within the United States, TAC managed assets in excess of $16 billion. Its diverse offerings included tax credit syndication for developing and financing affordable housing and distributed solar energy systems, multi-family development, management, and real estate ownership.

During his tenure at TAC, Shawn played a pivotal role in developing over 14,000 LIHTC apartment units. With the sale of TAC, Shawn leveraged his extensive experience to establish Alliant Communities (ASD).

Before founding TAC, Shawn was employed by a nationally recognized tax credit syndication firm, serving as the executive vice president and chief financial officer responsible for the company’s and its affiliates’ financial affairs.
Shawn received his Bachelor of Commerce degree in Accounting from Rhodes University in South Africa and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and holds active memberships with AHIC, AICPA, CalCPA, HAG, ICPAS, IMN, NCSHA, NH&RA, NHC, and ULI.
