Robert C. Patton EY Vice Chair Americas, Accounts

Ask Robert Patton what has motivated to him excel over the course of his career and he’ll say without hesitation: Passion! “I love springing out of bed and throwing 110 percent of my energy into a purpose I care deeply about and working with people for whom I care deeply,” Patton says.
