Born in Cape Town in 1964, Patrick finished his schooling at Westerford. After 6 years in the South African Navy as a Combat Officer and a substantial time at sea, he then moved ashore to Sasol in Rosebank, Johannesburg in 1988. Starting again from the bottom and working his way up, he soon found himself in Management, with his hands-on approach to life.

After successfully outsourcing the Sasol fleet in 1996, he has gone on to grow the business to the position of strength that it finds itself in today. He describes himself outside of business as a full time family man, traveller and part-time farmer and occasional daredevil. Patrick also serves on the Board of the RFA and of Mountain Ridge Wine Cellar. In addition, the rally to read project has been a passion to him since the year 2000.
