Patrick Streight, Director of Human Resources
Patrick Streight is the new Director of Human Resources. Patrick started his journey in human resources as an intern with the Marriott’s corporation in 1971. Back then human resources was known as personnel management. He was part of their management trainee corporation and was told in order to continue down that path, he would have to relocate to the Midwest for three years with no guarantee to return to California. As a born and bred Californian, he refused the position and built houses for the next 25 years. Patrick returned to HR in 1998, working with the tribes and has been doing Directors duties since then.
Patrick has been happily married to his wife Janet for 25 years and looks forward to the next 25. They have raised three kids, one boy and two daughters. In his youth, Patrick was an avid backpacker and walked over 2,500 miles of the PCT. Growing up in the bay area during the sixties was an adventure that has left its mark on him. He holds the sixties responsible for his baldness.
