Whether as a General Manager, Vice-President or as the CEO responsible for the Sodexo Group in Mexico, Mr. Patorniti’s philosophy has been simple: “Engage your team members and they will accomplish the unthinkable.” In his 7 years as CEO and President, team México tripled revenues, increased cash on hand by 10-fold, and led team México to reinvent the Company’s brand to meet Mexico’s market spending behaviors and consumer preferences. Deeply committed to education, he was the genesis of a partnership with the Mexican Department of Education, to establish an adult degree completion program. This program enabled Sodexo employees and family members who had not been able to complete their Elementary or High School education, to do so.

After retiring from Sodexo in 2013, Mr. Patorniti has not only become more active in business, but has ventured into higher education. As a Rutgers University faculty member and lecturer, he imparts professional wisdom into several graduate level courses at Rutgers Business School, both in the US and Singapore. He continues to be a dedicated mentor to business executives and Graduate students.

Outside of academia, as a Partner in Tenacity, Inc. he has provided catalytic influence in protecting, retaining and renewing major B2B contracts to organizations in the manufacturing, insurance, and pharmaceutical industries. His work spans from Australia, the Americas, and several European countries Tenacity’s Clients for Life® client retention process protects over $23 Billion in management service contracts around the world.

Mr. Patorniti holds a Bachelors of Organizational Management from Nyack College, New York and a Masters of Business Administration from the Rutgers Business School at Rutgers University.
