“I am passionate about helping people by doing the little things.

-Patty Richmond

How has your role at Xpress Technologies evolved?

I’ve spent the last five years in the new hire onboarding/trainer role and that has allowed me to learn as we grow, explore processes that I was curious about, and work alongside a variety of people and departments. I’ve seen the bigger picture of our company and I think this exposure is really going to help me help the company in my new role as Process Consultant. I’m going to be exploring our processes a little deeper, identifying inefficiencies, and provide a pathway for coworkers performing those processes in the future to execute with clarity. For me, the best is yet to come and I’m so excited for my future career path at Xpress Technologies.

What gets you up in the morning?

During the workweek, it’s getting to be a contributor on a team that is trying to make a difference in the organization and in the industry. On the weekends, it’s my dog!

Who is your role model and why?

My parents have played such an integral part in my personal and professional development. They’ve always emphasized the importance of hard work, compassion, generosity, faith, forgiveness, and those are the characteristics I love most about myself.

am passionate about helping people by doing the little things that make their job easier, making people feel valued or acknowledged.
