Former SBS rep in hospital after being struck by vehicle

Published August 29, 2017

SEATTLE (BRAIN) — Greg Shepherd, a long time rep who worked for SBS from 1998 to August 2015, was recently hospitalized after being struck by a car. Shepherd is recovering from spinal cord injuries at the ICU at Harborview Hospital in Seattle, where he’s been since Aug. 21.

Shepherd was hit by a car and thrown while riding his bike. The full extent of his spinal injuries is not yet known, according to a GoFundMe page that was started to raise money for his medical bills. 

Erica Johnson, corporate accounts program manager for Accell North America, launched the fundraising campaign.  

Shepherd was a rep for SBS, Redline, Torker, Lapierre, and other brands over the years. He mostly covered New York State. 

"He was one of the top reps of all time for SBS and all who worked with him loved him,” said Johnson. “Friendly to everyone and a gentle giant.” 

“Greg had long lasting relationships with many of his dealers on the East Coast over the years and he kept in touch with many even after leaving ANA,” said Dave Bailey, another former SBS/Accell rep. “Greg was a super classy, fun guy to work with and be around when we worked together at SBS and ANA.”
