Mr. Paul Patton is a vice president of Criterion’s Intelligence Solutions business unit. He was the Founder and President of SAGE Black, which was recently acquired by Criterion. SAGE Black is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Criterion and provides a full spectrum of software engineering services to the GEOINT/SIGINT, space, and cyber domains with a growing Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (MI/AI) presence. Mr. Patton is responsible for cultural integration and workforce development.
Mr. Patton’s entrepreneurial yet conservative business approach, passion to develop high performance teams, and his years of consulting experience—including 17 years at Oracle, USA—provided a foundation to start SAGE Black. He is passionate about our team, our customers, and our country we serve.
A dedicated husband, father and grandfather, Mr. Patton loves his family. He grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, graduated with a B. S. in Mechanical Engineering from OU (Go Sooners!) and married the love of his life, Holly. He works hard to live a life founded on his faith and values.
