Patrick is the managing partner of Burke & Schindler, CPAs, a firm he founded in 1984. Burke is a respected expert in business acquisitions and sales, deal structuring, value building, and succession planning.
Currently, he is Chairman of the board of directors of a closely held $70 million medical consulting company and board member (including chairman of the audit and compensation committees) of a closely held $500 million real estate services business and holds Series 7 and Series 63 licenses.
Patrick is the author of “The 10 Biggest Business Mistakes: And How To Avoid Them”. Although experience is the best teacher, it’s also the most costly. Learning business lessons the hard way, through your own mistakes, often results in significant downturns or even failure. Business success doesn’t require a fabulous new product or service (doesn’t hurt, though) but does require avoiding the big mistakes. I made most of these big mistakes myself and barely lived to tell about it. So please do as I say and not as I did. The book can be purchased here – https://amzn.to/3AIcPWh.
