Patrick has spent nearly two decades working at the intersection of environment, technology, and business, and brings a unique combination of boldness and pragmatism to corporate sustainability.
Prior to joining Watershed, Patrick led sustainability at Salesforce, where he spent more than seven years building the program that has become a standard-bearer in corporate climate action. During that time, he worked to bring forward the full power of Salesforce for the planet, by defining and executing a comprehensive strategy with thousands of brilliant collaborators throughout the business and beyond. Through his work, he helped Salesforce achieve net zero emissions and 100% renewable energy, pushed all of its suppliers by making climate a contractual obligation, and helped build and bring to market Net Zero Cloud. He’s been in the trenches with many of the world’s leading companies, helping them craft lasting and impactful sustainability programs—work he plans to continue at Watershed. He currently serves on the board of the Ocean Foundation and is an advisor to Generation Investment Management, TOPO, and Humanitas.
