No wonder Patrick is engaging and dynamic at his numerous business continuity speaking engagements around the country…as a two-time All American cheerleader and former University of Maine mascot, Bananas the bear, he’s had plenty of practice motivating crowds!
Consonus is pleased to have Patrick Dunn as practice manager - business continuity and disaster recovery. His extensive background comprises over twenty years of industry experience providing crisis management, business continuity development, disaster recovery planning, information security, IT assessment, and project management for Fortune 500 and Big Five accounting firms. Impressive credentials include time spent at SunGard Availability Services as a BC/DR Consulting Practice Manager, as well as Cap Gemini, Wright Express, Check Free/FISERV, and Fairchild Semiconductor.
As if his job doesn’t keep him busy enough, Patrick is an active member of numerous highly-regarded industry organizations up and down the east coast, including the Contingency Planning Association of the Carolina’s Inc. (CPAC) where he was recently appointed vice chairman. Industry certifications include: Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP), and National Incident Management Systems (NIMS).
On those rare occasions of downtime, Patrick enjoys wine tasting (Shiraz is his favorite), American Revolutionary history (as a former Park Ranger for the National Park Service he led historical tours), and watching his beloved Boston Red Sox. Obviously a proud graduate of the University of Maine at Orono, Patrick lives in Flowery Branch, Georgia.
Three cheers for Patrick!
