Roger Shepard

Roger Shephard

Business Development Manager

As a senior body corporate manager for the past 14 years, Roger has recently moved to Auckland Body corporate, and he believes in building long term strong relationships, based on trust, with his clients.

Trust is everything: it is not only diligent management, but it’s about people as well. Because of this Roger brings with him key relationships with prominent Auckland developers and property companies and is experienced with large multi-unit developments from the ground up.

Roger has been married even longer than he has worked in the body corporate industry; Roger and his wife have two sons who share his sense of humour and adventure in life. He and his wife started from scratch and over the years have built up a portfolio of investment properties in Auckland. That hard work has made him acutely conscious of his job and few conversations are had with Roger that don’t include property. It’s this experience and insight that make Roger a great asset to the body corporate owners. He is a team player, works with clients to solve issues, believes in consistently delivering solutions that add value to his clients.

Roger’s keen insight, broad range of experience and sense of humour make him an asset to the Body Corporate team.
