Don Carper

(603) 672-5515

Agency Partner / Owner

Account Executive

Don is the active partner/owner of Davis & Towle Walnut Hill. After starting the business with his father in 1987, the agency eventually became the family business they were shooting for; his mother, wife, and now the employees encompass his family philosophy.

An entrepreneur at heart, he began his business career owning a bike shop in Portsmouth, NH with his sister and close friend. In search of a new challenge, he then moved onto the insurance world where Don Carper Jr. had been for years as an executive for AIG owned companies. Sitting at the kitchen table armed with a phone book and the products of just one carrier, he began the grind to what has become one of his pride and joys in his life.

His others are his two boys, Donnie (24) and Bug (22) whom who enjoyed traveling with for their sports and continues to spend a lot of time with on the water, talking cars or on the beach, as they all begin adulting. Nevertheless, Don remains as connected to to the business as he was in the beginning. He is easy to reach 24/7 to address quote requests and attend to the needs of his clients. After over 30 years working in the industry, his philosophy hasn’t changed.  He still believes, having a “real” person pick up the phone when you have had an accident, a claim, or need help with a billing question is invaluable to an overall positive insurance experience. “It’s the key to building relationships that ensure customers become family.”, says Carper.
