Having a humble background, Patrick works hard to reach his goals. Often being challenged by his mentors, telling him he might have been too ambitious, he worked with full conviction to succeed. With the same attitude, he competed for many years in long-distance running.
His key motivators are quality (getting a job well done), altruism (helping others to succeed), and recognition (both receiving and giving).
He managed to build many bridges between people from different backgrounds and cultures. His heroes are the many hard-working folks who stay out of the spotlight and join forces in challenging projects.
Patrick thrives in an international, pluralistic, authentic environment. He is married to a Swedish national, spends a lot of time in Portugal, worked, and lived around the globe.
He continues to learn the most from talking and listening to younger people (including his three adult children) and wants to be the same inspiring mentor as his mentors were in his life.
