Dave Shepherd founded Shepherd Insurance in 1977 to provide personal insurance and top-notch service to friends and neighbors. Almost four decades later, his agency has grown to include employee benefits and financial products.

Dave still oversees company operations, but gives credit for the agency’s continued success to the amazing team that has been built at Shepherd. Because of them, the company is recognized in 2014 as Agency of the Year by IIAI (Big "I"), a Top 100 U.S. Agency by Insurance Journal, and Top 5000 Fastest Growing Companies by Inc. Magazine. The Indianapolis Business Journal also recognized Shepherd this year as one of the top ten independent agencies in Indiana.

Dave is a native Hoosier and a proud Carmel High School alumni. He graduated as an Academic All-American basketball player from the University of Mississippi. Together with his wife, Sally, he lives in Carmel. When they are not working or playing golf at Crooked Stick, they enjoy hanging out with their seven kids and ten grandkids.
