Who We Are

Who We Are

Build Better Teams is an outgrowth of over thirty years of business management and executive search experience for its founder Don Patrick. Trained as a consultant in the DISC personality assessment tools, Don has watched how companies continually came up short in their ability to hire ideal team members consistently. Partnering with the Gabriel Institute and exposing the new paradigm that the Technology of Teaming brings to organizations is the logical next step in the evolution of hiring and team building.

Don has been a successful owner of a Sanford Rose Associates executive search franchise for over twenty years, earning numerous personal performance distinctions, as well as SRAI Office of the Year honors twice. Don is also an active member of the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS), a Past President and active member of the Georgia Association of Personnel Services (GAPS), and a past President and present Board member of the Owners Association for the Sanford Rose Associates franchise system. He has earned the designation Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) from NAPS. He received his BA in Mathematics/Economics from Rockford College in Rockford, IL. and is a past President of the Rockford College Alumni Association, and a recipient of the Karl C. Williams Award for lifetime service to the Association. He also serves on the College's Board of Trustees.
