Andy Patton

Andy Patton owns and operates iFoam in Nashville. A proud Nashville native, Andy loves that the community has a small-town feel with big city opportunity. He also loves the sheer quantity of incredible musicians here. He’s excited to bring a great service and high-quality jobs to the community with iFOAM. Before launching iFOAM, Andy worked in finance and healthcare. He started, built, and sold a healthcare technology company. He’s also an adjunct instructor at New College Franklin. He’s passionate about creating real, valuable, face-to-face connection with people, and creating outstanding customer experiences that build trust. He loves developing others at work, by helping them discover that what they think are their limits are often just the beginning of their capabilities. Away from work, he and his wife Katie have five children. He enjoys fly fishing, playing music, reading, and triathlons.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

- Theodore Roosevelt
