“I’m a strong believer in the power of networking. Actively participating in Executive Mosaic helps me to continue building relationships with key players in the Contracts profession,” said Shepard.”

In her current role with BAE Systems, Shepard is responsible for policy formulation and professional development functions for BAE’s U.S. and foreign-based entities.
