Joe Chapman

Hi, I’m Joe Chapman and I enjoy my role here as the Commercial Lines Director.  I am here to encourage the growth of our team members and, in turn, the agency.  I like to work in a lighthearted and collaborative environment that emphasizes the identification of client needs prior to client requests.

Prior to coming to Burke & Burke, I have worked at other regional agencies driving commercial lines growth with great success.  I attended American University here in the DC area and worked as an owner/operator for local restaurants before going into insurance.

My joy comes from raising my two kids and my one Rhodesian Ridgeback.  All three bring me happiness but the dog is the best listener.  I enjoy reading (Vonnegut, Twain, Sandford), fishing, UFC and when I get a chance try to sleep.
