It is with the greatest sadness that we inform you of the tragic passing of our dear friend and colleague, Patrick Durkin.

Over the course of his career in both the public and private sector, Patrick earned the deep respect and admiration of everyone with whom he worked. His significant contributions to our firm have been fundamental to our success. His energy and commitment to our team were only matched by the warmth and kindness that Patrick showed us every day.

Everyone at Atlas mourns the loss not only of a colleague, but of a dear friend. We have all grown to love Patrick’s wry humor and boundless enthusiasm for the people around him. His wisdom and compassion will be sorely missed by the entire Atlas team.

“In addition to being my partner, Patrick was one of the few truly great guys I have encountered over the years. Everyone he worked with admired Patrick’s dogged professionalism and innate selflessness. The depth and breadth of his friendships were unparalleled. He will be missed by all and leaves behind a legacy that we should all strive to emulate.” – David Schamis, Founding Partner & Chief Investment Officer

“I knew Patrick for almost twenty years – he was my wingman, my colleague, and my friend. Patrick was such a loyal, trusted advisor who brought joy and his own infectious energy to everything he did. He always wanted to help everyone and touched so many people’s lives over his career. He was devoted to Kristen and the kids, who he loved so dearly. He will be greatly missed by all of us.”- Bob Diamond, Founding Partner & Chief Executive Officer

Our deepest sympathies go to his wife Kristen, and children Luke, Austin and Kate.
