“I strive to develop the best company I possibly can.”
W. Patrick Dorn, Jr. started Anchor in 2000, implementing over thirty years of investment experience to develop the best business possible. His first role was in management at Wachovia, but Pat was always passionate about investments and developing relationships with customers. His experience in the military, where he served actively for two years and spent nine years in the reserves, taught him about people and contributed to his desire to connect with them.
Pat’s life centers around children and family. He and Jane, his wife, have three children and seven grandchildren. They look forward to the possibility of becoming great-grandparents. Faith is an important part of his life—he taught Sunday school for seventeen years and remains an active member of the church. Like many others at Anchor he loves the outdoors, hunting with his children and grandchildren, tree-farming, and spending time on his tractor to improve roads.
