R Ben Patterson CIC, CRM

Partner / Risk Advisor

I began my insurance career in August of 1996 after graduating with a BBA in Marketing from Harding University. Since the beginning of my career, I have committed myself to learning this business and now hold both the Certified Insurance Counselor, CIC, and Certified Risk Managers, CRM, designations, and I am a licensed agent in 39 states and a licensed Risk Manager.

I have served our association, both local and state, currently serving on the board of directors of the Independent Agents of Texas. I also served on the board of directors for the Independent Insurance Agents of Dallas and President of IIAD in 2014. Over the past several years, I have served on several insurance company national and local advisory councils and I was also recognized in the 2013 Dallas Business Journal’s List of 40 Under 40. Commitment to the community is an important part of the organization. I currently serve on the board of directors for the Allen Economic Development Corporation. I have also served the community through church, the local chambers of commerce and various local charities.

Vision & leadership

What do you love most about working for Patterson & Associates? Where we’ve come from and where the company is headed. The size of the organization is great, as we are important to our carrier partners and small enough to where each individual enjoys seeing their personal contributions support the performance of the company as a whole.
