Growing up in a household where the entrepreneurial spirit was alive and well, Patrick Vieira, started his first business, at the age of fifteen while he was in high school. After completing his post secondary business studies at Humber College, he knew his call was to join the family firm and follow in his father’s footsteps. Patrick become RIBO licensed in 2005 and like many others, started at the bottom, in the personal lines processing department, slowly learning all aspects and functions of the insurance brokerage business. After several years, Patrick developed a strong knowledge and understanding in the commercial lines area of insurance, with prompt focus on small / medium enterprise (SME) and commercial property. Patrick was an integral part in developing the Vieira Office commercial lines department, bringing in larger and more complex accounts. During this time Patrick also became active in the daily management of the office, dealing with all areas of management.
The Vieira Office has seen substantial growth under his leadership and Patrick was made partner in 2010. When Patrick is not at the office, he can be found playing golf, boating the waters of Lake Ontario, or out walking his dog; a miniature schnauzer named Lilly.
