Patrick WheelerEntrepreneurial Executive Security Officer Management Consulting
Patrick Wheeler has been involved in IT Consulting, Business, Engineering and Security for over 20 yrs. He has a Bachelors in Environmental Engineering, an MBA and is a registered Civil Engineer. His background includes fun job titles like Security Architect, Audit Manager, Inspector, Systems and Security Analyst, Project Manager, Operations Director, VP of Operations and Chief Information Security Officer.
Having never met a trendy topic he did not want to look into he enjoyed serving in California’s Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay Area specialising in security, compliance and operational efficiency topics prior to moving to Europe. He now focuses on ‘Cybrepreneurship’ in the Continental financial sector using opportunistic approaches to security program uplift and dabbles in blockchains, clouds, big data sets, compliance-driven-security and rescuing feral cats.
Personal interests include driving old cars too fast while taking photographs (in well-controlled and secure environments). Oh, and waterwheels. He now regrets this hobby after writing an EU grant of 2.9m€ to identify and convert old watermills to generate renewable electricity.
