As a delivery manager, I managed a large and high visibility project to design and implement FATCA/CRS to meet government regulations. I managed cross functional teams and multiple vendors to deliver multiple releases for a major Canadian bank.
I worked with Patrick on a Regulatory Compliance project that had very tight timelines and high visibility. I have seen Patrick to be one of most organized persons I have ever worked with. He is a great technical project manager who is process oriented and detailed oriented. He is very prompt in establishing appropriate process and tracking tasks to closure. Patrick is also very technical and able to pitch in with solutions for Technical Problems. Patrick (as Client side Project Manager) has provided me the necessary freedom to manage my team without micro managing and at the same time ensuring the team does everything that is required to be done. Patrick has provided all the necessary support that my team needed to get our issues resolved. I would love to work with Patrick again and would recommend him to anyone for his Project Management skills.

I worked with Patrick for almost a year on a very large compliance project. As a technology project manager Patrick managed the design and development team and coordinated with the architecture, BA and testing team. Patrick’s in-depth knowledge of FATCA and CRS implementation along with his professionalism and calm attitude contributed heavily to his successes. It was a pleasure to work with Patrick and look forward to our paths crossing in the future.
Patrick joined a large, complex project as the development leader that had many challenges in front of it. I can honestly say that I thought anyone coming into that role would be overwhelmed with the issues, but Patrick quickly stepped up to the challenge and delivered numerous high quality releases until the program was complete. He is very detailed oriented, quick leaner, good problem solver and responsive – so was a key asset to the testing organization for information, and for obtaining timely support when issues arose at anytime of the day or weekend. His business acumen hosts excellent communication skills and a professional approach even under the most difficult situations. On a personal level he is really nice person, and great team player. He would be an asset to any team.

Patrick is extremely positive, calm, knowledgeable and hard working manager I have ever seen.I worked in TD with Patrick, he was our client manager and we are fortunate to learn many things from him. Even in tough time also he always encouraged us to do well. His hard work and technical knowledge always motivates us to perform well. His positive attitude gives us confidence to do well even in very hard/tough timeline. He can manage any projects (even most complex one with hard timeline) and I would definitely love to work with him again in future.
I had a pleasure and a privilege to work with Patrick for over 2 years on some of the banks biggest compliance projects. He’s highly organized, dedicated, intelligent individual and one of the best Project managers one can ask for. In the compliance business, where the process is a “king”, never did I have to worry about t’s crossed and i’s dotted – I always knew Patrick will ensure it is done properly. Never , day and night if needed, his dedication and availability would be in question. I would be very happy to work with him again on the future projects, if lucky opportunity presents itself.
Patrick is a strong contributing member to the FATCA/CRS Program, he has played a critical role in the successful delivery of this program. I had the pleasure of reporting to Patrick on one of the many sub-projects he was assigned to. This particular project was a high sensitive and critical project that demanded a strong senior manager in place, and Patrick exceeded expectations. Patrick developed a foolproof approach, strategy and execution plan that drove the ultimate success of this project. Throughout the project, Patrick consistently proved to be a manager you can depend and rely on. All issues / conflicts that I escalated to him were easily turned around and/or plan was set up to resolve almost right away. He was able to clearly communicate objectives and expectations, and is an effective delegator applying trust to achieve and deliver what I was supposed to. Patrick’s strong attention to detail, ability to apply project management expertise as well as effective people manager skills to his employees and projects, make him a strong and valued asset to any team that gets the pleasure of working with him.
