- Appointed Executive Director of AIMCAL in June, 1998.
- MBA in Management and a BS in Market Research.
- Over 25 years of converting industry experience in marketing, sales and communications.
"I love this job", says Mr. Sheppard, "The converting industry will be a strong industry for many years to come and AIMCAL has a wonderful opportunity to be an equally strong technical, marketing, research and networking resource to all. AIMCAL is owned by the many member companies from all over the globe who are the key players in the web coating process — converters and suppliers. The owners expect a good return in value for their investment in AIMCAL and I believe that is what they will continue to get. The many quality people who invest their energies in the association — staff and volunteers — assure that value from AIMCAL membership will continue well into the future."
"Directing AIMCAL has been a wonderful experience and I have been fortunate to be a part of a success driven by many individual contributions", says Sheppard. "The opportunity to work with so many top people in this industry is both rewarding and an honor. While I am pleased with the progress that AIMCAL has made, I am most excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. AIMCAL will always be driven by its mission and vision to provide value to the membership and the industry."
