Mr. Hiebert graduated with a degree in Computer Science from the University of Winnipeg in Canada. After working as a consulting specialist on emerging technologies for several years Patrick co-founded an Energy Management Software firm which quickly grew from the founders to over 300 employees with offices and clients in the US, Canada, Central and South America, Europe, and Australia. After the company was acquired Patrick founded a second software company which was also later privately acquired.
Finding himself with more time on his hands, Patrick took the opportunity to travel with his family. One of these travel adventures took him to Nicaragua.
Looking for a change and to make a difference in people's lives, Patrick found Nicaragua to be the perfect blend of the safest country in Central America, friendly people, beautiful landscape and the perfect climate. Patrick is now in his 11th year working, volunteering and now living full time in Nicaragua.
Applying his business experience and knowledge to Gran Pacifica Beach and Golf Resort as owner of the hotel rental, tours and restaurant businesses, Patrick grew these businesses substantially in a few short years. Patrick then joined the ECI Development group (parent corporation of Gran Pacifica, Grand Baymen and other Central American resorts) as Vice President of Sales and Marketing overseeing the Sales and Marketing efforts in Belize, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua and its expansion into other Central American countries. Patrick currently is the Chief Operations Officer for ECI overseeing all operations of the company.
As the founder of the Help Them Help Themselves charitable foundation, Patrick is also very committed to improving the lives of the local people through leading many projects that focus on healthcare, education and shelter.
