Our Team



Dan Sheppard

Jr. Partner

From the time Dan can remember, he always had a baseball in hand. Starting in tee-ball and soon moving into competitive leagues, Dan was a natural athlete and soon expanded his skill set into football, as well as baseball, in high school. After being scouted by the Chicago Cubs Dan made the decision to fist attend college and play D1 baseball for the University of Iowa – Go Hawkeyes! He pursued his Bachelor’s, while excelling at his responsibilities as a student athlete and after graduating, immediately went to pursue his Master’s in Sports Management at Northern Illinois.


Dan started with South Inc Nashville in February of 2015 after being attracted to our company’s culture and performance based advancement. With his competitive nature and no-excuses mentality, Dan received his first promotion 15 short months later and second promotion to Junior Partner in August 2016.


When he’s not at the office or hanging out with his team, Dan can be found re-watching Prison Break (he’s watched it 3 times already!) or catching a movie. A massive cinephile and sports fan, he’s always entertaining us with movie quotes and sports trivia.



Kassi Davis

Director of Human Resources

A Hendersonville native, Kassi grew up just outside of Nashville with a passion for soccer, horseback riding and enjoying nature with her 2 brothers and grandparents! A soccer player for 15 years, Kassi learned the values of hard work, dedication and teamwork. It was no wonder after studying at Volstate, she looked for an environment where she could apply her passion for people.


Starting with South Inc Nashville back in January of 2016, Kassi originally applied to be a part of our Management Training Program! Though highly successful in our marketing department, our Executive Team found Kassi’s skill set perfect for our HR/Recruitment team, and she was offered a position spearheading employee on-boarding and satisfaction.


You can find Kassi cheering on the Vols every Saturday, exploring new restaurants in Nashville and picking up the occasional soccer ball here and then. In 3 years she will continue to implement growth for our office and client, helping with the training and development of all HR Managers in our company across the US!



Hannah Johnson

Marketing Manager

Born and raised in Stone Mountain, GA, Hannah went to Georgia Southern for Business Management and Marketing. Growing up the youngest of five children, she has always been an ambitious hard worker with a desire to help others. Outside the office, she enjoys hiking, walking her dog, and breathing in that fresh Music City air any way she can.


In January 2012 Hannah began her professional career in Atlanta mastering the in’s and out’s of marketing, sales, and business management. Starting out as a sales representative, Hannah quickly earned assistant management and then management responsibilities within the first 13 months of her career. In the spring of 2013 Hannah moved to Nashville to expand her horizons, working in a new and exciting market, full of culture and surrounded by music. She opened her first office in Nashville soon after the move and has continued to grow a booming marketing office ever since.


Hannah highly values helping others to achieve professional success, through providing the same opportunity she was given when she began her career. With help from one another, greatness can happen for any number of individuals, she believes. Today, she intends to expand this opportunity through a concentrated work ethic and a positive attitude dedicated to her clients and her business partners, present or future.
