He was responsible for the oversight of both Berkshire's Property Management and Redevelopment & Engineering organizations and supervised an employee base of more than 700 professionals covering more than 30 markets and 30,000 apartment homes.

Shuler was instrumental in developing and implementing the Joint Legislative Agreement between NAA and National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) in 1991 that has been one of the multifamily housing industry's most effective advocacy tools.
