Mr. Sheppard began his career in 1982, under the guidance of Harry Helmsley, one of the titans of the real estate industry. Rising to the position of Vice president in two years, it was here that Mr. Sheppard served until 1989. Mr. Sheppard continued his career at Cushman & Wakefield where he pioneered the concept of out-sourcing of corporate real estate services to a single provider.

This concept helped Mr. Sheppard expand his national real estate experience by engaging in development, sales and leasing assignments in more than 25 cities across the United States.

Here Mr. Sheppard expanded his national real estate experience by handling such high profile mergers as Thompson McKinnon and Prudential Securities. In this assignment alone, Mr. Sheppard merged more than 75 offices across the United States in six months. He was also involved in the Development of the SunBank Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a 17 Story office tower and the 20 Story, mixed use Esperante Center in West Palm Beach. He also expanded Galbreath’s Tenant Representative division to include multiple Fortune 500 companies. After five years with Galbreath, The Helmsley Organization asked Mr. Sheppard to return and offered him the position of Senior Vice President where he directed the management and leasing of more than 4 million square feet of commercial space and more than 100 real estate agents.

Mr. Sheppard’s extensive real estate background includes real estate consulting, office building management, asset management, commercial leasing agencies, tenant representation as well as development of commercial and residential towers and residential planned communities.
