Patricia Bartos has been working at PricewaterhouseCoopers for over 22 years and is now the managing director, functioning as operations leader. During her first 20 years at PWC, Patricia was the leader of Finance and Project Management, responsible for 1.3 million square feet of real estate across eight offices. Having a keen eye for numbers, she has a solution-driven mentality and focuses heavily on analytics. Family means everything to Patricia, who was adopted at a young age. Her children, now her greatest joy, inspire her to be a better person and role model. Patricia graduated from Hofstra University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Having worked in the nonprofit sector for the past 10 years, she is always looking for ways to contribute to society and get involved. Patricia is also on the board of Trucked Out Inc. and a member of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women. She joined the Step Up for Better Living (Step Up) board in January 2020. As a property owner herself, Patricia appreciates Step Up’s mission after seeing her tenants struggle to afford housing. She is keenly aware of people’s great need for support and services like the ones Step Up offers. Grateful for all she has, she looks forward to serving on the board so that she can use her skills and background to give back to the community.
