Geordie Earle is the co-founder of Venture Insurance Partners, a locally owned and operated independent insurance agency in Tequesta, Florida. The establishment of Venture Insurance Partners is a culmination of over eight years of experience in the insurance field. The foundation and vision of Venture Insurance Partners are built on the fundamental principles of entrepreneurship, stewardship, customer service, and moral values.
In 2008, Geordie moved to the Jupiter/Tequesta area to take a position as a Producer with an independent agency in Tequesta. Over the next six years, Geordie developed his insurance knowledge and skills in multiple areas of insurance including, but not limited to, Contractors, Real Estate, Marinas, Restaurants, Golf Courses, Car Dealers, Wholesale Distributors, Manufacturers as well as some select High Net Worth Private Client personal lines clients. By developing long-term relationships with clients, centers of influence as well as underwriters, Geordie earned a spot as a top commercial producer for many years.
In 2014, an opportunity presented itself for Geordie to improve his career and become a Managing Principal of the Charles L. Crane (Crane) insurance agency’s Florida operation. Historically, this agency was owned by a Jupiter local, Richard Berube (operating as R.J. Berube Insurance); Crane purchased Berube Insurance in 2010. This career shift to Crane offered management experience as well as an equity stake in the agency. During the first year with the Crane Agency, Geordie and his business partner Matt Mitchell offered to buy the Florida office outright to operate as a stand-alone independent agency. Crane is based out of St. Louis, Missouri so Geordie and Matt jumped at the prospect of local ownership. This opportunity allowed us to fulfill one of our dreams to make a direct and distinct difference in the local community while at all times focusing on the needs of our clients.
Geordie combines his strong work ethic, entrepreneurial passion and technical expertise to provide the best insurance and risk transfer solutions for the agency’s clients.
Geordie was born and raised on Key Biscayne, FL (home of the Key Rats) where he grew up playing all kinds of sports from baseball to football to soccer to tennis to golf. Geordie also spent a lot of time on the water fishing and surfing. Most summers were spent at sports camps or up north in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee near Wolfeboro or in northern Michigan at the family cottage on Elk Lake near Traverse City. Those summers spent up north is where Geordie gained a passion for the game of golf which led to Geordie playing on the golf team at Michigan as well as a professional on the mini-tours in South Florida. Geordie graduated from The University of Michigan in 1996 where he earned his Bachelors in General Studies.
Geordie has been married to his beautiful wife Michelle for 15 years and they have three wonderful children; two sons and a girl. If Geordie is not working you will usually find him at his kid’s sporting events or playing golf.
