Patrick Sandner was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin, the youngest of four boys. By the time he was 12, Patrick started working in his parent’s business, and at the age of 14 he took charge of managing these stores when his mother began to face health challenges. Patrick pursued his passion for flying, getting his pilot’s license at the age of 16. After graduation, Patrick was accepted into the Air Force Academy, but chose to become an Air Traffic Controller instead. Following his passion for aviation Patrick moved to Florida and began flying for Aero Ambulance International. During these flights, he saw a need for food distribution centers in the Caribbean Islands, so he worked with a partner to create the needed distribution centers. At this point, Patrick decided that he wanted to start saving for his future. He didn’t like some of the advice he got, so he decided to learn about the industry and went to work with Travelers/CitiGroup. He was a Regional Vice President by the time he decided to leave in 2003 to create Landing Financial Group, Inc. with Kristi Knight. Patrick Sandner has more than 20 years’ experience in the insurance and annuity industry. Patrick volunteers his time with Veterans Benefits American Foundation and has also helped build a local children’s charity. www.LandingGroup.com
