Jonathan Sheppard is President and CEO of J. Sheppard Associates, a full service Attorney Search & Executive Placement firm servicing New York’s top tier law firms, corporations and nonprofits. Having spent his entire career in the recruiting industry, Jon founded J. Sheppard Associates in January 2000, along with its sister company, DayBreak Staffing, which provides support staff in the legal, corporate and nonprofits as well. Jon and his team work best with those who lead forward thinking, inclusive and positive firms, companies and organizations.
A former NYC board chair for Easter Seals, Jon’s charitable work extends to New York Cares, the 911 Memorial and Museum, The Cristo Rey NY High School and others. An avid runner, Jon has completed seven NYC Marathons, generally enjoys an active lifestyle of golf, paddleboarding, gardening and other outdoor activities with his wife, Susan, and stepchildren in Huntington, NY.
“I am humbled to be asked to be a part of things at Goodwill NYNJ,” said Mr. Sheppard. “A few years ago when a former Easter Seals acquaintance introduced me to Katy, the nonprofit’s president/CEO, I was immediately impressed with her passion and energy. With the board adding bench strength from the retail industry in the last few years, I look forward to advocating on the human services programs side of things, sharing Goodwill’s story. I look forward to serving under Chair, Don Huber and Vice-Chair, Doug Hand, in the coming years.”
