Shepherd Services Pty Ltd has been proudly assisting Local Government with specialist asset management and GIS services since its inception in 2000.

Business founder Darren Shepherd has established a trusted reputation for delivering expert advice, proven systems and practical training to improve operational efficiencies, saving councils valuable time and money.

A Registered Professional Civil Engineer, Darren developed a unique client-centred service model to deliver specialised asset management tools that connect asset accounting to engineering outcomes.

The opportunity to capitalise on Shepherd’s growth potential was realised in 2016 when the company welcomed new partner Les Edmistone, an executive management professional, as Director of Corporate Services.

With over 25 years’ experience in State and Local Government, Les is well connected within the industry and well respected for his proven track record of delivering large-scale infrastructure projects.

In 2017, Registered Professional Civil Engineer Stephen Hegedus became the third partner at Shepherd, appointed as Director of Client Services.  A former Local Government Chief Executive Officer and Engineering Director with over 25 years’ experience, Stephen has extensive expertise in strategic asset management planning.

Today the business boasts an executive management team with over 100 years Local Government experience collectively. Darren, Les and Stephen share a genuine passion for the industry and hold leadership positions on various asset management advisory boards at both a state and national level.

In 2019, the new Shepherd corporate brand was launched to reflect the growth of the business, its continued innovation, and its energetic and positive team.
