ATLANTA – Shepard is pleased to announce its recent hire of Kevin Felton as General Manager of their Los Angeles branch. In this role, Kevin will oversee all operational and production functions of this full-service facility.
“This is an exciting new chapter in my career—one I’ve been working towards for a long time. Having worked in the industry for the past twelve years, I’ve grown familiar with Shepard and its culture, so when the opportunity presented itself, I was confident it was a great move for me,” said Felton.
Felton joins Shepard with over 30 years of operational management, most recently serving as Director of Operations for a large, global event production company. Before that, Felton held positions as Director of Western Operations at Elliott Power systems and General Manager at GE Energy Rentals. Felton graduated from Tri-State University with an Electrical Engineering degree.
Shepard’s Los Angeles branch opened its doors in 2014 and has almost doubled in the number of shows produced and profitability. Located in a central location, the branch provides services throughout the west coast, including major metropolitan cities: Anaheim, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Sacramento, Seattle, and Portland.
“We’re seeing an increasing amount of business come in from west coast shows and having a strong leader to deliver operational excellence is critical to our customer’s success, and our own,” says Steve Margos, vice president of west coast operations, “Kevin’s experience made him a good fit for this position, but what set him apart was his alignment with Shepard’s customer-centric culture, making him the ideal candidate for this role.”
Felton and his family relocated from Orlando to Los Angeles where he has already started his new role.
