REED HATFIELD

RISK ADVISOR


I am a life-long resident of Dallas, and I joined Patterson & Associates after 20 years of Sales and Sales Leadership roles with Fox Sports, Time Warner Cable, and Charter Communications. My decision to join the firm was based on a desire to help companies and families to lower their exposures to unforeseen losses – by appropriately transferring risks. I thoroughly enjoy working with my clients to stay proactive in their approach to insurance needs – keeping them aware of changing market conditions and helping them to stay in front of potential problems. I have a track record of success in helping my customers by saving them time, lowering their stress, and helping them properly allocate the right budget amounts to the right initiatives.

I graduated from Texas Christian University in 1998 with a BBA in Finance, and I completed an MBA from the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University in 2005 – with concentrations in Business Unit Strategy, Strategic Leadership, and Entrepreneurship. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with Carrie, my wife of 20 years – and our twin daughters Cate and Claire (13), and Gigi (7). I have become a big volleyball fan, due to Cate and Claire’s participation in the sport. I also enjoy serving as a volunteer coach to Gigi’s basketball and volleyball teams – and I am an active leader of my children’s Sunday School classes. Although I don’t play near as often as in past years – I will always remain an avid golfer, and I try to fit in a round when schedule allows.
