Ken Shevlin joined the board of Piedmont Housing Alliance in July, 2017. Ken is an attorney with Williams Mullen and brings to the board expertise in commercial real estate law.
He earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he served as editor-in-chief of the Virginia Environmental Law Journal. He holds an M.Phil. in political thought and intellectual history from the University of Cambridge and a B.A. in political science, cum laude, from Yale.
Ken’s professional experience has highlighted for him the need for affordable and mid-tier housing in the Charlottesville and the surrounding counties. His interest in affordable housing work stems from a belief in the benefits of creating a community where everyone can live side-by-side. Previously, Ken has devoted volunteer time to serving the homeless and Habitat for Humanity.
With many friends and professional connections on the Piedmont Housing Alliance board, Ken was personally inspired to get involved in an organization making a big impact in affordable housing.
In addition to his volunteer work with Piedmont Housing, Ken is secretary of the board of directors of The Paramount Theater and was co-chair of the Urban Land Institute Charlottesville Young Leaders Group from 2016-2017.
Ken describes himself as an enthusiastic but mediocre runner who can be found on the trails around Charlottesville accompanied by his hound dog, Mo.
