DEP Names Patrick Patterson Southeast Regional Office Director

Patrick Patterson will become Southeast Regional Director of the Department of Environmental Protection effective May 15.
This position manages DEP field operations for Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.
“Pat’s commitment to transparency, collaboration and relationship-building make him the right person to lead the regional efforts in carrying out DEP’s mission,” said DEP Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell.
Since 2012, Patterson has served as DEP’s Local Government Liaison in the Southeast region, serving as the primary point of contact for all federal, state and local elected officials in the five-county region.
Prior to his DEP employment, Patterson was the Director of Business Development and Operations at a property maintenance company, and held several positions as a private consultant.
Patterson was a member of the Governor’s Action Team from 1997-2001, worked for a U.S. Representative for several years, and served as Executive Director of the Congressional Fire Services Institute in Washington D.C.
He began his career with the Delaware County Planning Department in the Subdivision and Land Development Planning office as a planner and coordinator.
Patterson holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in American Government from Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut.
“I’m honored to be given the opportunity to lead such an outstanding team of dedicated environmental professionals in our region,” said Patterson. “I’m ready to apply the different perspectives and experiences I’ve gained throughout my career to this very important role.”
“We appreciate the efforts of Acting Regional Director Anderson Hartzell, who served as acting director since October,” said McDonnell. “He will be returning to his previous position of Regional Counsel of the Southeast.”
