Leopardo Promotes Jessica Sherwood to Vice President of Business Development
Leopardo is pleased to announce that Jessica Sherwood has been promoted to vice president of business development. She joined Leopardo in 2015 as director of business development with a primary focus on Leopardo’s healthcare and senior living markets. During that time, she played a fundamental role in the national expansion of those markets and helped bring in an extensive list of notable clients and projects.
In her new role, Jess will continue to help grow Leopardo’s healthcare and senior living markets, but her expanded responsibilities include developing and leading the company’s entire business development team. Jessica will also be tasked with creating a culture of success and accountability measured through business and goal achievement.
“Jess is a leader. Her dedication to our company, our people, and most importantly to her clients, is unmatched in the industry,” said Leopardo Senior Vice President Giancarlo Pacini. “We’re very fortunate to have Jess on our team, and I could not be more excited to see what great things she’ll do in this new role.”
Jessica holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communication/media studies from San Diego State University, where she was recruited on a four-year, full-ride scholarship for women’s soccer. She is currently a board member and the networking chair of the Healthcare Engineers Society of Northern Illinois (HESNI) and is a member of the Association of Medical Facility Professionals (AMFP). Jessica is also a founding member of She Builds, an organization recognizing and connecting strong Women in Real Estate in Illinois and Wisconsin.
