DALLAS — The FRONTdoor Collective, a unique nationwide network of partners dedicated to providing best-in-class delivery experiences in the first mile and the last mile for e-commerce, today announces the hiring of Chris “Cpat” Patteson as their Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Security Officer.
Patteson specializes in driving digital transformations that empower businesses to grow and scale. Patteson has helped companies, large and small, address complex issues across the technology, manufacturing, and logistics sectors for more than 25 years. For over a decade he worked at FedEx in various roles, including Director of IT - Transaction Risk, Countermeasures, and Intelligence; and Managing Director of Security: Data Research and Analysis.
“It is no secret that no matter what you call it — last mile, first mile, pickup and delivery, micro mile — the operations surrounding these segments have not taken full advantage of all the available advances in technology. I am excited to be leading the team to do just that and to support the best operations in the e-commerce shipping business,” Patteson said.
“The keys,” Patteson continued, “are an architecture that is flexible enough to evolve as the capabilities do, to pivot with the needs of our partners, and to integrate quickly and smoothly with customers.
“Bringing the next generation of technology to the members of the FRONTdoor Collective will allow them to continue providing the brand’s proven superior level of service.”
“After an exhaustive search, we have found our technology leader with a history of rolling out products that are innovative and user-friendly. We have so much momentum and development underway to deliver for our future. Chris is a firm believer in our core values and we are excited to have him join our team to accelerate our growth,” said Dan Bourgault, CEO and co-founder.
