Incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Patricio Enterprises (PE) began operations in 2005 after the retirement of its founder and President LtCol Gabe Patricio, United States Marine Corps (Ret). After serving his last two tours on active duty as an Acquisition Officer with the Marine Corps Systems Command, first as a project officer and then as a Program Manager the transition to entrepreneurship within the Defense Industry seemed a natural fit. His vision, to provide innovative business solutions through streamlined cost effective methods that add value and help clients succeed became more than a bumper sticker and is in fact at the heart of the business model. PE became a Small Business Administration 8(a) certified participant in June 2005, and was verified a Service-Disabled, Veteran Owned Small Business by the Center for Veterans Enterprise
(CVE) in July 2009.
