Shepard founded IW more than a decade ago as an information technology
service provider to the U.S. government – a way to continue service to
his country after his military career. Since its formation, IW has
continuously extended its services beyond technical solutions through
its commitment to veterans, from donating more than 5% of annual profits
to building a workforce comprised of military veterans greater than 50%
of the entire organization.

Shepard also founded Warriors Ethos as another way to give back. Warriors
is non-profit that assists wounded and disabled veterans with
career planning, professional development and job placement. The
partnership between IW and Warriors Ethos empowers wounded service
members, veterans and their families to become independent,
self-sustaining and well equipped for civilian life. Their efforts have
played a significant role in reducing the number of unemployed wounded
veterans in Northern Virginia.
