Patrick began his retail career in 1998, managing one of Sewell Groups fuel and convenience stores in Hull. By 2001 the Sewell on the go portfolio had grown to 5 stores and Patrick was appointed as company director. Since his appointment Patrick has grown the business to 13 stores that now serve over 4 million customers per year.
Enhancing the offer even further, the business has developed strong partnerships with national market leaders BP and Costa Express and rebranded to Sewell on the go, creating a consistent recognisable offer for local people.
Patrick has led the business to various accolades. In 2013 Sewell was ranked amongst the NACS Insights top 10 International Retailers; the business has also picked up the Retailer Champion of the Year award in 2010 and UK Forecourt Trader of the Year in 2009 and again in 2016. Sewell is currently ranked 19th in the Forecourt Trader Top 50 Indies and is well known for being a Sunday Times Top 10 Company to Work For.
Initially joining the Independent Retailers Board in 2010, Patrick became a main ACS board director in 2011, Vice Chair in 2014, and then went on to become Chairman in 2016, adding a local, family, independent angle to national conversations.
