Patrick Watrin, senior vice president of operations at XRI Holdings, is today's featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
In addition to being a 2022 Forty Under 40 honoree, Watrin was also honored as one of Hart Energy's 2022 Impactful Veterans in Energy. He incorporates the lessons he learned about leadership and hard work during his time in the U.S. Air Force into his role as senior vice president of operations at XRI Holdings.
"My military service is something I would say was a challenge that isn’t typical of the majority," he said. "Making instant, life changing decisions was something that taught me a lot about leadership and how to react under pressure."
"My military service is something I’m immensely proud of, and to be recognized as someone who served that now makes a difference in our industry was very special to me," he continued.
As a senior vice president at his company, Watrin finds it exciting to guide and watch as his employees succeed in any facet of life. He believes that his role as a leader is to support and guide his team by example from the energy field rather than from the office.
"Watching a team fire on all cylinders because of excellent communication is like watching a symphony perform," he said. "Sure, there are still missteps in the best laid plans, but they are swiftly taken care of when teams communicate well."
