Erik Buteyn

Risk Advisor

I joined Patterson and Associates after careers in corporate sales leadership, most recently with Charter Communications, and ministry as an ordained minister.  My unique vocational experiences have prepared me to build strong, trusting relationships with my clients and assist them in navigating their risk exposure.

I graduated from Trinity University in 1995 with a BA in English and a BA in History. I received a Masters in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2001. Outside of work, I spend most of my free time with my 5 children: Landon (18), Tristan (17), Jackson (15), Harper (7), and Hunter (4). As a family, we enjoy outdoor activities, sporting events, camping, road trips, and movies. My personal interests include exercising daily, so I can keep up with my kids, and audio books while chauffeuring to school, lacrosse games, the rugby pitch, and soccer fields.


What are your hobbies &/or guilty pleasures? Spending time with family and friends, travel, basketball, golf, and game nights.

What brings you joy outside of work? My kids and their activities.

What do others say your strengths are? Sense of humor, loyalty, creativity, and determination.

Fun facts about you or your family: We love road trips.

What do you love most about working for Patterson & Associates? The opportunity to help our clients protect their most important assets.
