What is your role with The Cuyahoga Group?
Patrick: I’m currently employed as a Supervisor for the Erie Branch, and I worked previously as a Route Driver.
What do you like most about your job, and why?
Patrick: For me, personally, it’s the people! From our staff in Erie, to the company as a whole, and of course, our clients—I really enjoy being able to connect with and get to know people from all walks of life. Every day brings new challenges and opportunities to learn and grow—both personally and professionally. While everyone has their individual duties within the company, it really takes a “team” mentality to accomplish what we do, and I consider myself lucky to be part of this team.
Tell us a fun fact, or facts, about yourself:
Patrick: I really enjoy having the opportunity to coach my daughter’s youth soccer team during the summer months. I also enjoy getting out to the firing range from time to time to shoot pistols.

Patrick: My favorite meal would include a Delmonico steak, and my wife’s strawberry shortcake.
What is your favorite type of music, or favorite band or singer?
Patrick: I’m a fan of all genres of music, from rock to early 90’s hip hop, and everything in between. My favorite band is the Dave Matthew’s Band.
Please share with us a goal you’d like to accomplish someday:
