Guiding Quote: "Luck is when opportunity meets preparation."   -Seneca

When Frank opened the doors of Hayes & Associates in 1983, his values were clear. Build trusted relationships first, then customize services to meet each client's unique situations. Provide exceptional service not only to every client, but to the community as a whole.

Born and raised as one of 11 siblings on a farm in the then-segregated South, Frank understood early the values of hard work and overcoming obstacles. Growing up in that environment built his confidence that he and what would become his team at Hayes and Associates can move mountains to get the necessary results. Frank credits his mother for his fierce determination to fight for what is right and just, as well as his deep appreciation for the inherent value of every person he meets.

Today, Frank's commitment to these core values has helped to make Hayes and Associates one of the most well-respected firms in the Omaha area. His staff has grown, and his philosophy now includes a team approach to ensure a multi-dimensional approach to meeting clients' diverse needs.

As a minority business owner, he has provided guidance for other entrepreneurs who hope to leverage their expertise and passion to make a positive difference in Omaha. For his leadership, Frank has received several awards and was inducted into the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce Business Hall of Fame.

Frank's passion continues to be focused in two areas: his family that includes two children and two grandchildren, and his roles on the boards of various community, civic and educational organizations.
