In 1989, Don and a business partner formed Eppard-Zennie, Inc., a property management company specializing exclusively in the management, brokerage, consultation of retail shopping centers and office buildings. In addition, Eppard-Zennie, Inc., was involved in the development, acquisition and sales of single tenant net leased investments.
