Leadership: David Shepherd, CEO
With a passion for helping the communities in which its employees live and work, Shepherd Insurance started Operation Shepherding five years ago. In 2015, the initiative raised approximately $150,000 for a variety of causes, including $15,000 to support Prevail, a nonprofit that helps victims of crime and abuse.
In addition to supporting charities, Shepherd Insurance is focused on the needs of its customers within the niche areas of motorsports, restaurants, transportation and more. Now with 175 employees in 11 offices, Shepherd Insurance has experienced 15% year-over-year organic growth while managing $300 million in premiums for more than 15,000 clients.
