Tim Shepherd is Co-Founder & President - Business Development & Marketing at Australia-listed, Hong Kong based Silver Heritage Group. In 2001 Tim recognised the need for a professionally operated gaming company in the rapidly expanding casino market in Asia Pacific and opened the first legal sports bar in IndoChina at the Dansavanh Casino in Laos in 2003, shortly after which Silver Heritage was formed.
Operating across Asia for more than a decade, Silver Heritage brings best-in-class gaming operations to emerging gaming markets that are witnessing significant growth in gaming due to rising income levels, liberalisation of gaming regulations and the rapid growth of Chinese and Indian outbound tourism.
Over the past decade of operation, Silver Heritage’s internationally respected gaming team has served this increasing demand for gaming across the region and implemented global best practice compliance, professionalised the industry and lifted the standards of gaming operations.
Headquartered in Hong Kong, Silver Heritage now manages, and owns and operates world-class casinos and gaming clubs across Asia, more than 470 electronic gaming machines and employs more than 560 people across its operations in four countries.
Today, Tim manages the strategy, sales and daily operations for the group. Tim's background is as a management consultant with PriceWaterhouseCoopers and he holds a BSc(Hons) from The City University Business School, London.
