Licensed for over 15 years, Rick Hatcher provides exceptional customer service to Diane’s insureds.  He supervises the Agency staff and coordinates all Commercial and Personal Line marketing efforts. Dedicated to the family ethic of being there when needed, Rick has become the go-to person that all of the customers trust. 

A few things Rick enjoys doing when not working are back-packing, bee-keeping, and marathoning. He’s very active at work and at play!

Pamela Stramecki, Licensed Office Manager

Pam brought 26 years of customer service experience with her to the Agency last year and has quickly become a customer favorite. Her friendly demeanor and contagious laugh make her customer service in hot demand! The Agency is very lucky to have her.

Away from work, Pam likes to indulge in a good book and a little gardening.

The newest addition to the team at the Diane Hatcher Agency is Tandelia. She spearheads the marketing programs for the Agency and is the voice of the Agency’s outreach. She’s also a Notary Public.

Tandelia spends her time away from the office with her family and at school where she’s eagerly learning something new every day.

Piper McKnight, Operational Manager Assistant

(510) 581-5384

Piper McKnight has been with the Agency for over five years helping Rick and Diane whenever possible. Although she doesn’t work directly with the clients, her work helps keep the Agency running smoothly.

When not working, Piper explores her interest in animal communication or "whispering." She loves to rescue local animals in distress, often rehabilitating them with foster care before finding them new homes.
