Patrick talks about his role in the bank and life outside the bank.
What are you passionate about in your role? I enjoy being able to have a role in growing the economy by helping one company at a time. I make every effort to understand my borrowers’ needs and provide valuable solutions, such as leveraging SBA financing and other programs that assist in getting the deal done for the customer.
What are some of your hobbies and interests? I’m always up for outdoor activities such as skiing, running/cycling, playing soccer, but I also enjoy vegging out and watching Netflix.
Are you involved with any community causes or organizations? I am a board member and treasurer for Abby Kelley Foster Charter School here in Worcester. Additionally, I chair the race committee for the Corridor Nine Chamber of Commerce annual Applefest 5K, and serve as a corporator with the YMCA of Central Mass.
Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself? I can’t stay still. I’ve completed seven marathons, as well as six half-Ironman events and several triathlons of shorter distances. As of late, I’ve turned my attention to CrossFit and other high-intensity workouts.
