Kyle joined the family business in 2005. In his role as Sales Executive and then Vice President, he helped his father Bob Dean evolve Dean & Draper from a localized agency to a nationwide provider.
He was humbled to take over as President & CEO of the firm in 2013 after the sudden passing of his father. Kyle has continued to expand the agency and its comprehensive coverage options for individuals and businesses while maintaining his father’s philosophy of “work hard, play hard, and treat each other like family.”

He is passionate about giving back to his community, including Dean & Draper’s support of causes such as Camp Hope, which provides interim housing for military service personnel, veterans and their families struggling with PTSD.
Born and raised in Houston, Kyle still resides with his wife Kristen and two children in The Bayou City, where they can be spotted most weekends hustling between football, baseball, basketball and soccer games. Kyle and his boys are actively involved with Cub Scouts. In his free time Kyle enjoys fishing and cheering for his TCU Horned Frogs.
