Shep Werth

Shep Werth

Director of Business Development


The primary focus and responsibilities for Mr. Werth are the growth and expansion of the Active Captive Management, LLC network. With a refined approach to private client risk evaluation, Shep has implemented numerous sophisticated alternative risk solutions that are designed specifically for each individual client. With a passion for creating Fortune 500 level programs for small to mid-size businesses, Shep brings a comprehensive background in high level Commercial Property & Casualty, Professional Liability and Captive Insurance. Creating awareness of how privately held companies can “underwrite themselves” and increase profitability through proactive risk management is what drives Shep and the Active Captive Management, LLC team to separate themselves from their industry peers.
