They know stuff. If you ask them about it, they’ll be too modest to admit it, but don’t let them fool you. Patterson Pope has grown from nine employees to over a hundred and expanded from one state to five. Yeah, it’s safe to say, they know stuff.
Denny Hammack, President/CEO
Denny has been in the filing, storage and records management business for over 25 years. Along the way, he’s held every job title except “filing cabinet.” Now, he’s the seasoned (and passionate) leader of our mission to solve the STUFF problems of the world. Denny, a UVA grad, has been a member of the Johnston YMCA board for 14 years, enjoys coaching youth sports and teaching Sunday School. He and his wife Kathy have two children (Cole and Carly).
Will Patterson, CFO
Will is a bottom line kind of guy. From Virginia Tech to KPMG Peat Marwick to Patterson Pope, he keeps the numbers in line. He even keeps numbers in check at his church as Chair of the Finance Committee. But of all the numbers one can find in business and in life, two stand out for Will. 27 – the years he has been married to his lovely wife, Ellen. And 3 – his children (Wes, Trent and Anne Katherine).
David Parr, VP of Sales
A UNC-Chapel Hill grad, David brings over 25 years of sales experience to Patterson Pope. He came to P2 after 20 years with Weyerhaeuser in Sales, Sales Management and Operations. The easiest sell of his career was his interview with us. We jumped at the chance to get him on board. Outside of work he is on the board at the Siskey YMCA and is part of the Board and Executive Committee at his church. He is married to Cyndy and has three lovely daughters (Lindsey, Ashley and Anna).
Ron Nienhuis, General Manager, Florida Division
Ron brings 20 years of commercial interior experience to Patterson Pope. He’s worked at DuPont, and he was the president of Kardex for 10 years. He also has a PhD from Northwestern University. Suffice to say his resume makes our resumes feel bad about themselves. But that’s okay, we lucked out when we got him. Ron and his wife Bonnie have three children (Rachel, Ross and Ryan).
Dave Simons, Sales Manager – Midwest Division
Dave’s been selling as long as he can remember. Having spent 19 years with Pitney Bowes in sales and sales management (and five more with Central Business Group before our merger with them), he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team. His best sales job ever was convincing his longtime best friend, Charlotte, to marry him. Together they have three children – Lauren 25, Drew 22, and Tori 16. When he’s not managing our sales process or spending time with family, you’ll find him on the golf course or ball fields coaching and refereeing youth sports.
Jeff Pfohl, Operations Manager – Midwest Division
Jeff has been in the storage business as long there has been a storage business. Well, maybe not quite that long, but over thirty years is a long time! Having done everything from service to operations and back (with Central Business Group and now PattersonPope), he knows pretty much all there is to know about solving “stuff” problems. Jeff and Sharyn have been married for 37 years, and they are now enjoying being empty nesters. Almost – their daughter moved away but left her Pomeranian behind to raise as their first grandchild.
