Sponsor Highlight

Thank You To Our Sponsors!

This month we are happy to feature….

Platinum sponsor Chapman Insurance Group has offices in Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, and will soon be opening an office to serve Collier County. The family-owned company headed by Brian Chapman Jr. continues to expand.

Brian tells the story. “I began my career at my father’s State Farm office but left in 2008 to form a new independent Insurance agency allowing for many, many more options for our community. Chapman Insurance Group was founded here in Charlotte County in 2009.  We purchased our first building in Port Charlotte in 2011 and moved into that location in 2012 after a significant renovation. In 2015, we opened two new offices, one in Punta Gorda and one in Cape Coral. In 2018, we expanded once again by relocating our Cape Coral office and opening a new location in Fort Myers.

The Punta Gorda office at the corner of US 41S and Marion Avenue is an impressive renovation of an historic building that once served as a gas station. In recognition of the effort and results, Chapman Insurance won TEAM’s 2016 Beautification award. Chapman says of his decision to expand to Punta Gorda, “Relationships are the cornerstone of every great small business and I don’t think you can find a tighter knit community than PG.  My wife and I love Punta Gorda: the people, the restaurants, the history, the culture. We also felt the market was being underserved and with the development and growth, we felt as though the time was right for a second location there.” Brian remembers that when he opened in Punta Gorda, “supporting TEAM was the first thing we did. Our hope is that we will have many years of partnership with TEAM and be a part of the positive improvements and initiatives that come up along the way.”

Chapman attributes his continued success to talented employees, supportive community, family, and parents.

Team: “Our team is amazing. The first four people we brought on are still employed with us and 40+ team members later we have a very dynamic and vibrant workplace.”

Community: “From day one, the support of the PG Chamber, Charlotte Chamber, Realtor Association, and other influential individuals has been tremendous.”

Family: “Without my very supportive wife, Julie, none of this would be possible.  It takes two and I am VERY blessed to have her as my teammate in life.  We were high school sweethearts. ;)”

Parents: “Both of my parents, Brian Sr. and Sloan, have been my platform for success.  Without their guidance, development, and sometimes grace and mercy, I would not be who I am.”
