Patten Family Companies adds Carolyn Dion to Investment Team
Boca Raton, Florida. Patten Family Companies, the nation’s premier developer of recreational and residential land, has welcomed Carolyn Dion to its team of financial professionals. Ms. Dion, formerly a member of the American Stock Exchange, a Designated Market Maker on the New York Stock Exchange’s (NYX) NYSEArca Platform, and Vice President of Dion Money Management, will add her extensive financial background to the 100 year old firm, which has millions of dollars of investments in real estate, recreation, financial products, and aviation services.
“I am very excited to have Carolyn Dion join our team. Her background is extraordinary and her mix of talents will be a great asset to our organization,” noted Harry S. Patten, President of Patten Family Companies.
While Ms. Dion may be the newest member of Patten Family Companies, she will be following in the footsteps of her father, Donald R. Dion Jr. In 1986, Mr. Dion played a critical role in the initial public offering of an associated venture, Patten Corporation (BGX), on the New York Stock Exchange (NYX).
“My father’s business relationship and decades-long friendship with Harry Patten have had a strong, obvious, impact on my career,” Ms. Dion noted. “I feel honored to be joining the remarkable team here at Patten Family Companies. It’s like coming home.”
In her official role as Financial Advisor, Ms. Dion will assist in the acquisition and management of the company’s assets and financial ventures. Ms. Dion, who authored, The Ultimate Guide to Trading ETFs, will also contribute to the firm’s marketing activities.
Ms. Dion joins a number of “second-generation” Patten Family employees – children of former or current employees who now work at the firm. “It’s like one big family,” Ms. Dion noted, “looking around our offices, you can literally see the positive impact this company has had on the lives of its employees.”
