Prior to leading Convercent’s executive team, Patrick served as Chief Executive Officer of Rivet Software, another technology firm operating in the governance, risk and compliance space. In just two years, he propelled Rivet’s quarterly revenue from $240,000 to $12 million – an achievement that earned the company a #6 placement on the 2011 Inc. 500 List among software firms and a #60 listing overall. A founding partner of Nebbiolo Ventures, Patrick has also served as CEO of ServiceSelect and Delta Translation, which was successfully sold to LFI in 1999.

Patrick has served as a board member of Youth on Record and Young Americans Center for Financial Education, the country’s only FDIC-insured bank designed with youth in mind.
While Patrick loves to move at high speeds, he takes time to savor what matters most – his wife Kyla and sons Huck and Poe, dogs Paisley and Parma, and Baja the cat.
