Executive Director of the Mid-Atlantic Neighborhood Development Corporation
Mike Sheedy is the Executive Director of the Mid-Atlantic Neighborhood Development Corporation (MANDC). He is charged with establishing and operating this newly created affiliate of Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas as a premier non-profit regional affordable housing developer.
Sheedy started at MANDC in the Fall of 2022, to pursue housing development opportunities that facilitate the mission VOA Chesapeake & Carolinas serves. He has built key business relationships in affordable housing, with local, state, and federal agencies as well as private multifamily funders and investors, to increase earnings via development fees and other resources. He is successfully progressing towards the completion of several affordable housing projects in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia to provide supportive housing for the elderly, homeless families, veterans, and for our fellow neighbors who are most in need.
Sheedy previously served as Senior Vice President of Development for a Baltimore-based real estate development firm that created a portfolio of high-quality assets that include multifamily, industrial, office, and mixed-use projects. Throughout his career he has led his teams through every phase of the development process, from acquisition, design and construction to full occupancy. Prior to joining the real estate development world, Sheedy worked for two prominent architecture firms that specialize in higher education, campus master planning, and Federal Government projects.
Sheedy is a licensed architect who has a Master of Science in Real Estate Development from The Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Maryland. He also has a Master of Banking degree from the American Bankers Association (hosted by the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business School) as well as LEED Green Associate/sustainable design credentials. Sheedy proudly served in the US Army Reserve as an Arabic and Russian linguist interrogator.
Sheedy’s favorite activity is spending time with his wife of 26-years, five daughters, and extended family, and close friends. He is also thrilled with the opportunity to develop dignified, well designed, and constructed, housing for those facing difficult struggles in their lives.
