Prior to joining HawkPartners, Patrick built a decade-long career in the restaurant industry, most recently serving as the General Manager of a fine dining bistro in Berkeley, California. Charged with growing the small, family-owned restaurant into a local favorite, he developed a keen interest in marketing strategy – along with a deeper appreciation for a nice meal.
