    A native of rural Saskatchewan, Patrick started his career farming alongside his father.  After completing his MBA at the University of Calgary, Patrick worked for CIBC World Markets and GMP Securities LP advising on over $3 billion worth of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions.

    Sensing small to medium size business owners were not receiving quality advice when selling their business, Patrick founded Redcap&Truss in the spring of 2014.
