Pat – as he’s known to friends and clients alike – applies his 20-plus years of banking and financial advising experience to help clients across Crossville, Tennessee, with every matter money touches.

Prior to joining Raymond James in 2021, Pat served as market president and private wealth advisor for First Horizon Bank in Cookeville, Tennessee, for four years. He also worked as a financial advisor at Hilliard Lyons and as city president at FirstBank for a total of seven years. He was eventually drawn to Raymond James for its renowned reputation as a client-first firm and for its breadth of resources, research and planning tools, which he applies for the benefit of his clients.

A graduate of Mississippi State University, Pat holds a Bachelor of Science and a certificate of gerontology. He was inspired to join financial services because he wanted to help others, and he treasures the opportunity to work with clients to plan for life’s milestones and the detours along the way. “Ever since I started working in the financial service industry, I have seen the positive impact my knowledge and experience have had on my clients’ lives,” he said.

Open and honest, Pat prides himself on giving clients straightforward and applicable advice, as well as being a good listener who’s personally invested in seeing them succeed. Seeking to establish long-term client relationships rooted in trust, he serves everyone from business owners to families and retirees.

Pat is proud to be an active member of his community. He has served on the board for the United Fund of Cumberland County and as district finance director for the Catoosa district Boy Scouts of America. He was also a member and president of the Crossville Noon Rotary Club.
