Director of People Operations
Eco Performance Builders
Patch Garcia, is the Director of People Operations at Eco Performance Builders in Concord, California, where she leads business functions that support employee engagement and productivity. At EPB, the goal of People Operations is to improve and humanize business ops in order to create positive employee experiences. Two of her current projects focus on employee engagement: developing a culture of appreciation and building video training that helps employees move up the company's career ladder faster.
As someone who has staffed clean energy startups since 2001, Ms. Garcia has worked in home performance/energy efficiency, solar (both residential and commercial scale), biotech, zero net energy (ZNE) design, and zero-emissions/IoT product manufacturer.
Her claim to fame is building early-stage leadership teams. She also enjoys advancing diversity by recruiting from the LGBTQIA population, "de-genderizing" job postings, getting the right people in the right seats using a science-based/unbiased process and helping develop passion-driven company cultures that often outlive their venture capital.
In her non-work hours, she enjoys sailing, small dogs, red wine, and chocolate but not necessarily in that order.
