Leadership Team

Jim Fairchild, Chairman & Donna Fairchild, President

In 1979, Tampa native F. James Fairchild founded Fairchild, Addison & Harrell Insurance.  A few years later, Donna joined the team and the two of them built a company founded on the belief that building strong relationships with our companies and our customers was the key to success.  We’re celebrating our 40th year in business in Brandon, FL and are honored to continue to serve you.  We have taken great care to cultivate a family atmosphere where our team is excited to help protect our neighbors and their businesses.  From our family to yours, thank you for the trust and confidence you have entrusted to us.

Liz McKone, Executive Vice President:

I joined the Fairchild team when I was 16 – back in 1980 and in 2002 I was made partner. My favorite part of working here is building relationships and working with our great customers. I have two amazing children and I’m Nana to six grandchildren: Ajia, Mark, Gracie, Evie, Rosie & Brianne. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and living the Florida lifestyle – hanging out at the pool and beach.

Chris Bailey, Vice President:

I joined the commercial team here at Fairchild Insurance back in 2007. I graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s in management in 2014. My favorite part of my job is getting the chance to help people protect themselves as they start and grow their business. My main responsibility is making sure that the office runs smoothly. Whether that is fixing a computer, answering a coverage question or helping a customer with a particularly difficult problem as well as servicing accounts that I manage. In my free time I like to golf, I love e-sports (playing and watching) and playing with my dogs.

Commercial Lines

I started working at Fairchild, Addison & McKone in 2010. My favorite part about working here is that I’m part of a team that always prioritizes the customer’s experience and their best interest. My main responsibility is to help customers find the right insurance company for their business and service the accounts.
I married my high school sweetheart and we have two children – Lily and Ephram. In my free time I enjoy camping, getting pedicures, and spending time with my family.

Patricia Bailey:

I attended the University of South Florida and graduated as a part of their honors college. My background is in international marketing and management. I started working at Fairchild Insurance in 2015. My favorite part of working here is getting to be a part of an amazing team in commercial lines and taking care of my customer’s and their livelihood. My main responsibility is advising our customers of their risks and working to find them the best coverage for their business. I have two Whippet mix fur-babies, Natsumi and Sumiko. They are the light of my life and the bane of my existence all rolled into two furry 50 pound bodies. In my free time I enjoy binge watching all that Netflix has to offer, playing board games with my friends and going to trivia.

Personal Insurance

Anna Patterson, Personal Lines Manager:

I started working at Fairchild Insurance in 2001 and from the very first day, I was part of a family and not just an employee. My favorite part of working here is getting to work for people who value me as a member of their family and assisting customers in finding the most comprehensive and affordable option for their needs. My main responsibility is managing a group of hardworking and knowledgeable employees in our personal lines department. I am the proud mother of 5 amazing kids and 1 grandchild. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach and singing.

Megan Carey:

I joined the personal lines team back in early 2018. The best part of my job is building relationships with our clients and feeling like I’m still with family when I’m away from my own. As a personal lines agent, my main responsibility is helping customers make informed decisions about their insurance. I have two children, Lizzy and Jayden and two fur-baby rescues, a St. Bernard mix and a greyhound. In my free time I enjoy outings with my family, photography, Revolution Ice Cream, and cheering on the Tampa Bay Lightning. Be the Thunder.

Carole Tyree:

I’ve been with Fairchild Insurance since 2007. My favorite part of working here is getting the opportunity to help our customers and build relationships with them. My main responsibilities include helping personal lines customers, helping to manage office inventory, and caring for the office plants (making sure that Tracey and Patricia don’t kill them). I have four wonderful children and six beautiful grandchildren. In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my family, church activities and camping.
