Small Market Success with Patrick DeVries

Episode 34

March 21, 2023

In this episode I’m joined by Patrick DeVries, Owner & Founder of DeVries, Inc based in Spokane, Washington. He describes how he started with a records storage service and then grew steadily with the addition of courier and delivery services, then shredding services, and then the warehouse services have grown his business over the years. Our conversation focuses on the lessons Patrick learned along the way and he touches on topics including pricing, courage, confidence, salespeople, and equipment.

Patrick discloses one of the most helpful insights for owners related to selling services and pricing. That alone is worth the listen. Patrick also discusses the importance of the deep relationships and connections he’s made in the industry through NAID, PRISM and now iSIGMA where he recently served as Board President.

He also shares his love for skiing and mountain biking and how it has helped him as a CEO and leader.
