Pat’s career has included a number of stops along the way. He spent approximately 20 years in the Marketing function at Hewlett Packard Inc. In addition, he has spent time as a small business owner, an auditor and a merger/acquisition consultant. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting from Boise State University. He enjoys playing golf and exploring the outdoors when not at the food bank, which means he has done neither yet this year!
Pat’s areas of focus and ideas moving forward are to maintain the positive things we do but find areas to improve. He plans to improve internal communication so everyone knows what is happening in and around the food bank. We need to continue the strides we have made in marketing and external communication as those efforts translate to new donations. We will continue to look at new programs to meet the growing needs of our community.
