Greg Hatcher

Greg Hatcher started The Hatcher Agency from scratch in September of 1990. At the end of the first year he had produced more insurance in his first year of business than any agent in the state of Arkansas. Three years later, The Hatcher Agency was named Arkansas' Small Business of the Year by Arkansas Business. The Hatcher Agency was the largest health insurance agency in the state of Arkansas, and it has been the number one producer in health insurance sales since. Greg is the author of 55 Steps to Outrageous Service, a book outlining the service that The Hatcher Agency delivers everyday to their clients.

Greg and The Hatcher Agency have earned numerous awards and recognitions including lifetime status in the Million Dollar Roundtable, a lifetime Golden Eagle Award by the National Association of Health Underwriters, Arkansas Business of the Year in 1993, Arkansas Business' Most Philanthropic Company in 2006, and Arkansas Business Best Insurance Agency since 1990. Greg is very involved in the community. His philanthropic works include serving as Past Chairman of The Little Rock Marathon, Baptist Health Foundation Board, Heart Ball, Heart Walk, and The Arthritis Foundation. He is also the founder if the Arkansas Wrestling Association (AWA) and has purchased the mats for 64 high schools and 7 colleges to help get new programs started at these schools. Greg is honored to add the 2014 Breath of Life Award for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to his achievements.”

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
