General Manager

Our General Manager, Deryk Shepherd, started with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK in December of 2006. He worked as a driver/crew leader for five years at 3 different franchises. Later, he assumed the Operations Manager position at the Tampa office from 2012 until 2014, where he developed a new system for quality control, training and hiring processes with great success.

Here, he has taken our company to be voted “Best of the Best” moving company two years in a row, by our citizens in Ocala.
He also has successfully established different programs like the on-site storage, our Last-Mile delivery service and the creation of a Senior Transition Package to ease the move of our elderly citizens into either an Assisting or independent Living or Memory Care facilities. Born in Ohio, he moved to Tampa in 1996 and went to school to the Aerospace Engineering program. In his free time, he enjoys working on his muscle cars and playing ultimate frisbee.
