How It All Started

After spending over 35 years working with some of the most unique hospitality brands in the industry and transforming Arizona's Hermosa Inn into a world-renowned resort, Michael Gildersleeve set out to help others achieve similar successes. In 2014, he began laying the groundwork for Patton Asset Management (named after his mother, Mary Louise "Mimi" Patton), while serving as The Hermosa Inn's Asset Manager and helping transition the resort to new ownership. After managing the Inn's sale and the first phase of its remodel, Gildersleeve turned his attention to Patton Asset and dedicated himself to delivering the same impressive results to hospitality businesses across the country.
