Please join MPA in welcoming to the staff, Michael Pattenaude. Michael has extensive private industry and public entity experience managing both General Liability and Worker’s Compensation claims programs. He holds a B.A. in Mathematical Sciences from U.C. Santa Barbara and a Master of Business Administration from Webster University. Born and raised in California, Michael spent four years in Arkansas working for Walmart’s corporate office in various capacities. Michael states, “There was an enormous amount of culture shock when we moved to Arkansas. I came to appreciate even more the diversity of the people, values, and even the food that we often take so much for granted here in California.” Michael moved back to California in 2008 and spent the next eight years as the Risk Management Analyst for the East Bay Municipal Utility District. Michael’s hobbies include flying with his father, motorcycling and extensive traveling. As to joining the MPA team, Michael says “Being in Walnut Creek is such a nice change in environment after working in Oakland for the last eight years. Everybody has been so helpful and I look forward to contributing to MPA’s ongoing success.”
