The Shepherd Express is seeking to hire a Business Manager who will handle all business-related matters for the company. The Shepherd is looking for a smart, well-organized, energetic, upbeat person who is very comfortable with numbers and who has good social and diplomatic skills to handle accounts receivable.

The candidate needs to understand basic bookkeeping, budgeting, monthly financial statements and managing payables and receivables. The Shepherd has an outside accounting firm on retainer, so the candidate does not need to be an accountant.


  • An undergraduate degree, ideally in business, economics or some related field, or two years of experience working in a similar capacity
  • Proficiency in various computer programs, including Excel
  • An entrepreneurial attitude that sees minor daily work obstacles as challenges

The Shepherd Express is a great place to work. The Business Journal recently recognized the Shepherd as one of Milwaukee's Top Workplaces.

The salary is competitive and commensurate with the training and experience of the candidate. The Shepherd Express provides a full array of employee benefits, including medical insurance and retirement contributions.

The Shepherd Express is celebrating its 30th year of serving Milwaukee, and, according to Media Audit, the Shepherd Express and ExpressMilwaukee.com have more than 300,000 readers. During the past four years of recession, the Shepherd Express did not lay off any employees, did not force any furlough days on employees and did not lower salaries in any manner.
