About Cindy Shaffer

Cindy Shaffer is the owner of Shaffer Development, and she always says “I am not in the property business, I am in the people business.” It’s a phrase that is at the heart of every one of our projects. Our aim is to create spaces that enrich the lives of everyone in the community.

My career started after graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Madison where I earned my degree in Marketing and Communications. After working for several Fortune 500 companies, I pursued my passion of entrepreneurship. I built and sold several successful businesses before starting Shaffer Development in 2001. Over the past two decades, Shaffer Development has developed a portfolio of successful projects worth over $100 million including Spur 16, Mequon Town Center, and Grafton 1505 Apartments.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I take pride in being an active member of the community.  I am committed to making a positive impact in the lives of others through my volunteer work including as past president of the Mequon-Thiensville Sunrise Rotary Club. I am honored to have been recognized as a Milwaukee Business Journal Woman of Influence and have Shaffer Development recognized by the MT Chamber of Commerce as Business of the Year in 2016.
