Patrick Nangle

Patrick Nangle is the CEO of Modo Co-operative, a consumer co-op that provides a platform for carsharing with more than 12,000 member-owners and 25,000 eligible drivers in 24 municipalities across BC. Modo’s purpose is to transform communities by connecting people with places in a way that’s affordable, convenient, inclusive and sustainable. He is proud of the way that the Modo team lives this deeply embedded purpose and the value they are creating for all stakeholders. Prior to joining Modo, Patrick was President & CEO of Purolator Inc., based in Mississauga, ON.

Understanding at an early age the importance of international business to the Canadian economy, he set out to obtain the education and experience that would permit him to make a contribution. That resulted in him earning a graduate degree in international business at UBC and spending more than 20 years living and working outside of Canada, residing in The Netherlands, Switzerland and the U.S. Following early career work in marketing and product management, he has been leading businesses of various sizes in the transportation, logistics and technology sectors during the last 25 years.

Patrick is a strong believer in community and sustainability and is an advocate for the role of member-owned co-operatives and social purpose enterprises in strengthening community resilience. He also serves on the boards of the British Columbia Co-op Association and Catalyst Community Developments Society, a BC-based not-for-profit real estate developer.

An urban beekeeper, he is actively involved in leading a David Suzuki Foundation project in his neighbourhood that is oriented to the health and wellbeing of native pollinators. He is proud of the fact that this local collaboration with neighbours has resulted in the creation of 80 pollinator gardens in boulevards and corner triangles during the last two years, with more to come.

Patrick was born in London, Ontario and now resides in Vancouver with his partner Carmelita, their cocker spaniel Milou and a thriving apiary in the backyard.
