Seprio was founded in 2000 by Patrick Bohnenkamp, Randy Roth and Brad Simpson, all of whom remain actively engaged with the company and its clients.
As CEO of Seprio, Pat ensures the organization operates as efficiently as possible and that our staff has the skills and resources they need to excel at protecting the business priorities of our Clients. Pat is very involved in product development efforts, creating and delivering consistent, high-quality products to our Clients. Pat is a discerning customer in both his personal and professional life. He researches a product before making a purchase, and expects what he buys to work. This allows him to stand in our Client's shoes, to understand their priorities and perceive how Seprio can best protect those priorities. Pat makes it a point to try and learn something new every day, preferably from his own mistakes. “If making mistakes is a qualification for being a CEO, then I’m certainly qualified.” – Pat
Pat is, first and foremost, a family guy. His nights and weekends typically involve a lot of soccer, but he also loves to travel with his wife and four kids and experience all the world has to offer.
