Sand Mountain Park & Amphitheater

Patrick is currently the general manager at Sand Mountain Park & Amphitheater. Prior to this, Patrick was an integral member of the leadership team during the pre-opening phase of Spooky Nook Sports, which at the time was the largest indoor sports complex in North America.  Spooky Nook Sports is a sixty-five acre, 700,000 square foot facility which over one million unique visitors attend per year.  He was able to consistently build high performing teams that achieved goals and provided exceptional customer service.  Spooky Nook Sports quickly grew into one the best indoor sports complexes on the east coast in part due to Patrick’s excellent leadership.  He also was one of the key operational liaisons to the United States women’s national field hockey team which practiced and hosted matches at that location. 

Sand Mountain Park & Amphitheater is a 120 acre venue that will focus on positively impacting the Sand Mountain Park region through health/wellness, recreation, events, and economic impact.  Some features of SMP&A include an outdoor amphitheater, a two-story fitness center, indoor hardwood courts, outdoor turf fields, an RV park, indoor/outdoor aquatics, tennis courts, playgrounds, a walking/running trail, and dog parks.  SMP&A will be opening next year and will be one of the most unique venues in the U.S. because of the amazing amenities it will offer.  Patrick sees this opportunity as a sincere honor because he will be able to serve the City of Albertville and help make the SMP&A dream become reality.  His leadership style focuses on purpose relating to the mission, ownership, development, performance, and teamwork.

Patrick’s passion is to make a positive impact on the Albertville community through sport, recreation, events, and wellness.
