About Patrick Eakes

Patrick grew up in Greensboro, NC. He earned a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at N.C. State University, focusing his graduate work and thesis on innovative computer chip production methods. Following his graduation in 1989, Patrick returned to Greensboro and joined his family’s mechanical contracting business.

In 1996, Patrick formed C.P. Eakes Company, a manufacturer of high-end custom metal goods. The company operates in Greensboro and produces a wide variety of products, including ornamental stainless steel and brass, pharmaceutical and food grade stainless steel machines, and many items for specialty contractors.

Patrick joined Crescent Rotary in 1998 and has been a committed Rotarian ever since. He served as President of Crescent Rotary Club in 2001-2002. He also led the club’s drive to become the first Triple Crown club (100% PHF, 100% Sustaining, 100% Benefactor simultaneously) in the Rotary world. Patrick has served District 7690 as District Conference chair (2004), Assistant Governor for 8 clubs (2004-05), and he was the district Rotary Foundation chair or co-chair for five years. During that time, the district became the first district in the Rotary world where every club (50 clubs) became a 100% Paul Harris Fellow club. In each of those five years, District 7690 also led the world in the number of 100% Sustaining clubs. Patrick has been honored with the Crescent Rotary’s club service award three times.

Patrick has served in leadership roles in many non-profit and community organizations, including the Greensboro Sports Council and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Patrick also served two years as President of Sedgefield Country Club, leading the organization through negotiations and eventually the successful sale of the club to McConnell Golf. Through his role on the board at Sedgefield, Patrick was instrumental in facilitating the move of the PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship to Sedgefield, partnering with Wyndham’s core team in Greensboro to ensure a successful transition. Patrick also served on the Wyndham Championship Board of Directors.

Patrick is married to Kristen, owner of Kristen Eakes CPA, and they have a 11 year old daughter (Sarah) and an 8 year old son (John). Patrick enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and wine collecting.

Patrick and Kristen are Paul Harris Fellows, Benefactors, Major Donors, and members of the Paul Harris Society. Patrick is a recipient of the Citation for Meritorious Service.
