It was not just because he was also a Boston College Alumnus that Paul Zientek was so impressed with Patrick Bradley when he interviewed for the Operations Manager position; rather, people like Pat are difficult to find. After college, Pat helped start and run a small family company. Pat moved on from his family company and joined Vintage in September 2001. Pat was not previously involved in the wine industry but displayed an intense desire to learn and a keen attention to detail. Paul knew these are the key qualities for a person asked to handle the vital responsibilities of Operations Manager. In many companies, it takes several people to handle the immensely important duties that Pat is able to accomplish and achieve.
While his responsibilities are too vast and numerous to list, Pat directs the traffic and transit of all of Vintage Imports wine shipments from shipping ports throughout the world, oversees the entire order process, in addition to supervising the customer service staff and warehouse operations at Vintage Imports’ headquarters and in many ways is the glue that integrates all of Vintage Imports’ operations and ensures that things run smoothly. Pat resides in Newtown, PA with his wife and two children.
