We are sad to report the death of David Shelton, the founder and chairman of Shelton Development Services (SDS), at the age of 66.
Shelton started SDS from a spare bedroom in 1994, helping property developers and housing providers with land acquisition, financial viability, and legal and planning issues. He created the development appraisal software ProVal in 1998 which has since become one of the most widely-used appraisal models in the housing sector.
Phil Shelton, CEO, Shelton Development Services, said, “My father was a kind and generous man with great integrity. He spent his life dedicated to the housing sector, influencing thousands of people through his work. His legacy will live on through the people he helped and the software systems he pioneered.”
