Ian Shepherd

Ian Shepherd lives in Horsham, West Sussex, with his wife, Helen. Between them they have 4 children and one grandson.
Until 2007, Ian ran his own IT and Business consultancy company, at which point the demand for consultants within the specialist area in which Ian operated, was replaced with a drive to recruit more permanent staff. This led to a career change with Ian then utilising his business skills within the NHS and becoming a Practice Manager for a busy GP Surgery.
In 2014 he also began working as a Specialist Advisor for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the regulatory body for the health and social care industry. In his “spare time” Ian also helps his wife run their very successful, Horsham based, Domiciliary Care Agency and assists with the editing of the Mark Year Book.
Ian’s Masonic career began in 2008 when he was initiated into Grecian Lodge 3718 – he is currently IPM. More recently he joined March & Darnley Lodge 1141 and is currently their Worshipful Master. Ian also belongs to other orders including Grecian Chapter as well as Vaudeville Mark Masons Lodge No 801 and its associated Royal Ark Mariner Lodge.
