“Mike is an invaluable asset to Shepard and has shown his ability as a natural leader,” says Margos. “He is passionate about reducing customer costs, systematic in his process approach, and strongly advocates sustainability in the workplace. We have worked closely for many years, and I look forward to working with Mike during Shepard’s next phase of growth.”
