Our mission for these last 10 years has been to inspire and help business leaders to transform their company culture by putting God at the center of their workplace, coaching them in their efforts to care for people in a way that honors Him.
That’s why we are thrilled to announce that the His Way at Work Board of Directors has named Chris Patton as our Global CEO, effective January 15, 2018. Chris joins our already strong HWAW team which includes Peter Freissle, Founder & Chairman, Armando Del Bosque, International Director and Kelly Slate, Director of Operations and Learning.
Chris has spent the previous 25 years working as part of the third generation of a 55-year-old family automotive business, most recently serving as President / CEO. The Mike Patton Auto Family is a multi-dealership group operating in LaGrange, Georgia.
15 years ago, Chris was challenged by the Holy Spirit to view his place of work as his ministry. Chris has since led his family’s effort to operate this business from an eternal perspective. The mission of the Mike Patton Auto Family is to honor God by impacting the lives of their employees, customers and community.
Passionate about sharing his experience with integrating his Christian faith into the workplace, Chris has reached countless business owners and leaders in the US and internationally through his blog, ChristianFaithAtWork.com. He has also developed self-help resources, written books, and acted as a mentor to other business leaders. Chris is a highly sought after speaker in the workplace ministry movement with a strong background and following on the subject of faith in the workplace.
