We recently sat down with Patrick to learn more about his role at CapRelo and what he enjoys doing in his spare time.
1. Who is “Patrick Cacho?” – Where do you come from, what is your background, what do you do?
I grew up in New York City and graduated from the City University of New York with a degree in Psychology. Soon after graduating from CUNY, I went on a business trip to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles and decided I definitely wanted to relocate to California. A year after that infamous trip, I relocated to San Francisco where I met my bride, Marilyn, of 30 years. We have two sons who were competitive collegiate golfers and graduates of Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business.
I joined CapRelo as a VP Global Business Development for the Western Region and I bring over 20 years of RMC experience where I served in a variety of roles including operations, account management and sales. I have also owned two executive search firms.
2. How long have you been with CapRelo, and what is your favorite part about your position?
I started at CapRelo on January 5th and it has been a great new experience. During my interviews, I was impressed to learn that CapRelo has enjoyed 100% client retention for the past 6 years. This spoke volumes about CapRelo's “culture of service,” which was exactly the type of work environment and culture I wanted to be a part of.
When you are selling in the consulting industry, you want to represent a company that has a great reputation for service and delivers on their promises! I am passionate about helping others. I truly enjoy working with global mobility professionals that work for some of the largest corporations on the Fortune 1000 list, as well as some of the fastest growing companies in the world. It’s exciting to learn about a prospect’s workforce mobility issues and then help them to customize solutions to make their jobs, and the relocations of their employees, easier and stress free.
3. What do you do in your spare time, what are some of your interests?
I value quality time spent with family and close friends. I enjoy traveling with my family, especially to one of our favorite places, the Hawaiian Islands. I like taking hikes into the San Jacinto Mountains, playing racquetball, watching all types of sports, playing golf with the family and going to some of the “major” golf tournaments.
Some other interests include having some laughs over a good glass of wine or a great craft beer and recently, I have started learning how to oil paint landscape scenes. Still on the bucket list is learning the piano so I can play "As Time Goes By," from my favorite movie "Casablanca," and maybe one day, retiring in Hawaii!
