“Business Improvement & Profitability”

“During Pat’s tenure as the Global Head of HR for HSBC’s Private Bank, I led, for the Americas region, several talent and organizational development initiatives aligned to Pat’s global remit: a full-scale business transformation of the Global Private Bank. Our focus was to implement a global, multi-cultural and value-based “de-risking” of this fragile business sector, and Pat successfully planned and directed the required human capital management.

Pat is a strong and highly-respected HR leader, an advisor to CEOs, Executive Committees, and Group-level Management; he is proactively sought out by his executive-level clients for advice and counsel. Pat’s perspective is informed by significant, global experiences at complex, multi-national firms, and he is known and noted for his strategic relationships and consistent, business-focused HR. His approach yields ongoing business improvement and profitability within a culture build on values and corporate citizenship. Pat can advise on matters key to business strategy and can make and execute the hard decisions. He has a reputation for courage and integrity. It was very rewarding for me to work with him.”

“I have worked with Pat for several years and have been impressed with his ability to solve complex and highly sensitive issues with discretion and probity. Pat sees the big picture while addressing the details, and skillfully balances legal and business imperatives that may be in tension with each other. He successfully (and tactfully) resolves situations that present a high risk to the company’s brand reputation to the benefit of all stakeholders.”
