Board of Directors

Hiren Patel

SECRETARY
Executive Director, Investments, Oppenheimer & Co. Inc.

Hiren joined Oppenheimer in 2021, as an Executive Director, with over 10 years’ experience. He serves a broad range of clients, including business executives, entrepreneurs and other professionals and their families, and enjoys connecting with them on a personal and professional level.

Drawing from a vast array of services to help them simplify and better organize their financial lives, he helps clients look at the big picture, so all of the pieces of the puzzle work together in harmony. To accomplish this, clear and transparent communications with clients is critical. A strong proponent of financial education, he takes the time to translate complex principles of investing and finance into digestible concepts.

Hiren’s wife, Dhruva Patel, is the Accounting Manager over Marketing and Creative at Neiman Marcus Group. They have been married since 2012 and live in North Dallas. Along with their yorkie, Auggie, Hiren and Dhruva have two kids, Sahai and Naira, who keep their days filled with organized chaos. They enjoy traveling all over the world, trying out new recipes at home and volunteering as a family on the weekends.

Since moving to Dallas in 2014, Hiren has been an active volunteer in the Dallas community. His volunteer work started in 2014 by serving on the board of the Gay and Lesbian Fund for Dallas, of which he is now the current President. Since, he has volunteered with Lambda Legal, Point Foundation, Legal Hospice and SPCA of Texas, to name a few. Hiren was asked to join the SPCA of Texas’ Board in 2018 and is thrilled to be in that role. He believes animals are one of the greatest gifts to people and volunteering with the SPCA of Texas is one of the best ways to show our appreciation.
