Epitec Supplier of the Year
Chief Executive Officer
Jerry Sheppard founded Epitec in 1978 in Detroit with a goal to create and manage his own small business for the next several years.

Mr. Sheppard developed his own management team and organically grew Epitec into the organization it is today. With over 1000 employees in 32 states across the nation, Epitec is one of the largest minority-owned firms in Southeast Michigan and a Crain’s Private 200 Company. Epitec is a multi-year MMSDC Supplier of the Year winner and also a 10 consecutive year winner of the Best & Brightest Company to Work For.
