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.

Because of them, the company was recognized in 2013-2015 as Top 100 U.S. Agency by Insurance Journal, 2014 Agency of the Year by IIAI (Big “I“), 2014-2015 Top 5000 Fastest Growing Companies by Inc.

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 eleven grandkids.
