Episode 64 – Byron Patrick

February 1, 2017

Byron doesn’t horse around with client relationships


Byron Patrick spends a lot of time shoveling horse manure. Literally. It’s what comes with the territory as the owner of a small horse farm. But whether it’s digging post holes for the fences or grooming the horses, he says it’s nice to sit back at the end of the day and be able to see the fruits of all his hard work.

In this episode, we talk about how talking about things that interest you and genuinely being interested in talking about things that interest those around you will lead to weird connections that you never thought were possible. He’s also found his management skills have grown due to his time on the horse farm learning how to motivate horses to do what you what you need based on what interests them.

Byron Patrick is the Managing Director of CPA Practice at Network Alliance Inc. Prior to that, he spent 8 years as the CEO & Co-founder of Simplified Innovations Inc. He’s been the MACPA Chair of Board of Directors, received the Baltimore SmartCEO CPA Power Player Award and was listed in the CPA Practice Advisors 40 under 40 for five years from 2010-2014.

He graduated from Salisbury University – Perdue School of Business with a BS, Accounting. He also holds the following certifications: CPA, CITP, MCSE, CCA and CGMA.
