Shepherd Insurance has once again been named one of the Top 100 Privately-Held Independent Agencies in the United States. The 2014 list was recently revealed in the August 4th issue of Insurance Journal. Shepherd Insurance LLC is listed at #92 and is one of only two Indiana-based agencies to make the 2014 list.
Shepherd made the list thanks to writing $13,135,000 in property and casualty insurance revenue in 2013. That’s nearly 40% growth from the results reported to Insurance Journal in 2012. This growth was a combination of organic growth, strategic acquisitions, and a ten-year plan that has resulted in revenue growth over 100% since 2004. Those strategies have continued in 2014 and the agency expects to move up the Insurance Journal’s list again in 2015.
CEO David Shepherd said, “It’s not just about growth,” he says. "We take great care of our employees and, in turn, they take great care of our customer and it creates this great momentum. That's the magic. It’s great to see our team get recognized for their hard work by making the Top 100 list again.”
Partner and CMO Quinn Shepherd added, “The needs of our clients and staff are our priority at Shepherd Insurance. Being recognized by Insurance Journal helps us know that our focus is in the right place.”
