Milwaukee-based bike-sharing network Bublr Bikes, which entered the Wauwatosa market in September, has named Sally Sheperdson as its new executive director.

Sheperdson, a Pewaukee native, brings 20 years of experience in executive leadership roles with nonprofit institutions in Wisconsin and New Jersey, focusing for the last 12 years on leading efforts to secure resources for advancements in cancer and diabetes research, according to a news release.

“I am so excited to be joining the Bublr Bikes team,” Sheperdson said. “This position offers me the opportunity to combine a personal passion — energizing the Greater Milwaukee area that I love — with my professional nonprofit leadership background.”

The organization also named James Davies to the new position of senior director of operations and planning. Davies had been acting director since September 2016 when Kevin Hardman, the organization’s first executive director, announced his resignation.

Sheperdson most recently served as executive director of the Central and South Jersey Affiliate of Susan G. Komen, the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer.

Prior to that, she held the position of executive director of the American Diabetes Association for the Wisconsin market and executive director of the Southeast Wisconsin affiliate of Susan G. Komen. Sheperdson holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nonprofit management from the University of Massachusetts.
