You might know me as Randy, or Randall, or even Douglas – all will work. I was born and raised in Dallas in the insurance business having obtained my first property/casualty license while still in high school. I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BBA in Marketing and Management and while still in school began my employment with St. Paul Insurance Company as a commercial lines package underwriter.
After several job changes and different assignments with both St. Paul and Travelers I moved to London for a year and interned as a Lloyds broker for Lowndes Lambert Group to complete the full cycle of experiences the insurance industry has to offer. On returning I worked in the family business but wanting to focus more on commercial and personal insurance, my wife and I formed Rekerdres Insurance Agency which together we operated for over 30 years when the opportunity to merge with The Lipscomb Insurance Group came along.
I believe in giving back to the community and recognizes that continued education of agents plays a pivotal role in this industry, so he currently sits on the education committee of the Texas Professional Insurance Agents. He also sits on the risk management committee for the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas and is the chairperson of the risk management committee for St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church of Dallas and where he has been a member most of his life.
I have been married to my lovely wife Gay for nearly 40 years and together we have a beautiful daughter Anne who lives in California with her husband Tom Earp and their 2 children Eleanor Margaret Earp and Thomas Charles Earp and when I have free time it is spent talking or playing with them.
I was honored to recently be recognized as one of Dallas’ BEST Insurance Agents for five (5) years straight by D Magazine.
