Daniel W. Post, CIC, President
Dan Post kicked off the second generation of Post Insurance by following in his father’s footsteps and working in the office after graduating from UCLA in 1979.
Starting his career as an agent in the Personal Lines department, Dan worked with clients on insurance solutions for their homes and autos, then made the transition to Commercial Insurance for the agency’s business clients. He continued his insurance education, attaining his Certified Insurance Counselors degree in 1983, which he still proudly maintains. Over time he began to specialize in certain areas of insurance, with construction being his area of expertise.
Today, Dan leads the Post Insurance Family as our President, and, unlike most agency Principals who are off on vacation the majority of the work- week, Dan comes into the office every day ready to work. His commitment to his clients, his staff, and his agency is shown through the example he sets with his amazing work ethic. “Dapper Dan” (as he is affectionately known), can almost always be found in his office with his custom monogrammed dress shirts and his neatly organized work desk.
Dan manages to keep his insurance proposals a key priority, while simultaneously watching play-by-play updates about the LA Dodgers from ESPN on his iPad, and focusing on his wife, 3 boys, and 14 animals at home. Not only that, he is active in community service, and has held Board positions with the Peninsula Education Foundation, the Torrance South Bay YMCA, Peninsula Heritage School and Rolling Hills Little League.
Between working on his golf handicap and ordering a new pair of Allen Edmonds online, Dan continues to build relationships that help contribute to the growth of this agency. With 35+ years in the industry, Dan has an extended expertise in all areas of the insurance realm. From working up a proposal, processing a payment, or filing a claim, Dan literally does it all. Highly admired for his laid back, easy going, never angry attitude, Dan continues to make Post Insurance a workplace of choice for his staff.
He is truly “Dan-Dan the Insurance Man”. We love him!

John P. Post, CIC, CRIS, Vice President
After graduating UCLA in 1984, John Post decided to join his brother Dan a year later at the family business and help continue the legacy of the agency their Father founded.
Currently holding a dual license in both Property & Casualty as well as Benefits, and attaining his Certified Insurance Counselors degree in 2000, John is one of the most genuine agency principals out there. In addition to personally mentoring the members of the Post team, John always finds the time between handling his large commercial accounts and eating a Torrance bakery chocolate chip cookie (or 3), to sit down and offer a listening ear. When he isn’t rooting for one of his three All-star daughters, John is limping into the office after enduring yet another athletic injury himself. (It’s no wonder he married a physical therapist!) John truly has a heart of gold, which glows through his dedication to his families, both at home and at work. He never fails to help teach, train, and promote within the workplace, keeping his loyal staff always learning and forever growing.
John’s sense of professionalism and expertise is what helps shape and build the Life/Health and Commercial department and keeps it on the rise. Currently on the California and the National Agents Advisory Council for Liberty Mutual, John continues to remain in the top 5% of his peers for receiving numerous production awards from our carriers for achieving benchmarks of success. His keen sense of management is what helps minimize our damage control efforts at Post Insurance. If there is ever a situation too big to handle, John’s leadership kicks in to help to smooth out the kinks and keep all sides of the situation happy. As the true professional that he is, he continues rotating his favorite employee in the office depending on who brought what treats for the day. Although Thursday mornings he’s often hitting balls on the tennis court before coming into the office, there are two things we can definitely count on from John.
First, he will continue to always root for his Post Insurance family and provide quirky yet successful sales contest incentives and second, the 1 o’clock walk past the lunch room to ensure that the staff is wrapping up their lunch and getting back to work! We see you see us John!
He is truly a role model that many staff members look up to personally and professionally.
