Meet the Executive Team

Dale Earp

Dale Earp

President and Founder

Hey Folks! I am Dale Earp.

A proud native of Bucks County in the Philadelphia area, I built this empire from the ground up.  I started as an independent agent doing door-to-door sales and working tirelessly to help people. After a year or so, I had a little team of guys I trained right at my dining room table.  Soon we had a small office built and then doubled in growth within one year….moving into a space triple the size. Now we are a National Marketing Organization that supports thousands of agents and agencies.

I created Earp Enterprises to be a respected Leader in the Insurance Industry.  My vision was to build a company of unique values, culture and reputation for going above and beyond to make people happy.  Not only have I developed direct relationships with state and national directors for numerous Insurance Carriers, I have also won awards and recognition for those  accomplishments.  

Over the years, I’ve worked tirelessly to establish strategic guidelines for Earp Enterprises so that each and every agent who comes on board is personally mentored by me.  I have a big sense of humor and believe life is too short to take too seriously! 

Rachel Earp

Rachel Earp

Vice President

Hey Friends! I’m Rachel.

My background is in Education, and I bring to the Company a unique perspective on advising and “educating” clients every day.  Formerly a Pre-school Teacher, I have a huge passion for helping others understand and have access to a life of knowledge.  I assist with the interviewing process, pre-licensing students, recruiting and marketing.  I am a published author of historical fiction and poetry.  One of my huge passions is holding Chairman for Best Buddies of Southwest Florida, and I am an advocate for Down Syndrome Awareness and children with disabilities.

I am a contributing author for Women’s Insurance Network (WIN) and enjoy mentoring other women in the industry.  You will see me at Universities, community colleges, expos and other events, eagerly sharing career opportunities with Earp Enterprises.  I have a huge heart for the community and love spreading cheer whenever I can.

Stephen Earp

Chief Operating Officer

Hey guys! I’m Stephen!

I am a native of Philly, with a background of ten years as a law enforcement officer.  My passion has always been helping the community and keeping it safe.  I graduated from Mansfield University with Honors.

I have spent most of my life volunteering in the community through civil air patrol and ambulance services.  I enjoy woodworking and can pretty much create anything out of wood. I spend most of my free time wrangling the infamous Wyatt Earp (my son, whom we named after the Legend).  

I now serve my local community through Medicare, Life & Health Insurance.  I am a huge advocate for making sure people know their options and make informed decisions.

I am the Executive Assistant here at Earp Enterprises. As being the oldest of four children, I love being a leader, and taking initiative with anything that I can.

Yo! It’s #BeFrank! (aka Brian here)

I am a Broker Manager with Earp Enterprises and love it! I service the Southwest Florida market.  

Moving to Southwest Florida in 2004, I have put my roots deep into the fertile grounds of the area. I am a father of three and a husband.  As a proud Southwest Floridian, I have been helping to push growth and opportunity in the area through art, music, and networking events. I partner with non-profits such as the McGregor Clinic, American Legion, and the Heights Foundation. Providing a “peace of mind” through insurance products is a passion of mine, and I specialize in the Life & Medicare markets. I’m known for my exuberant personality and genuine love for the community. 

My “we can do this” mentality brings people together to accomplish great things. I manage Teams with Earp Enterprises and my passion for bringing in more individuals with high career aspirations is contagious.
