Gaining insight from a boardroom veteran 

About this episode

It’s not every day we’re granted the opportunity to gain insight and valuable knowledge from a former CEO and current board director on multiple Fortune 500 companies. That’s why I’m so excited to welcome today’s guest, Patrick O’Brien, to this episode of Boardroom Bound!

In today’s episode, we talk with Patrick O’Brien who provides insight from his current and former board roles such as President of North America and Europe at SC Johnson, and CEO of Paris Presents. He now serves as the chairman of Patina solutions. In our conversation, Patrick dives deep into how not only cultural backgrounds make a difference, but locational backgrounds as well. Having a diverse board is just one of the key secret ingredients to building a successful company and career, and he talks about more on today’s episode of Boardroom Bound.
