Patricia V. Click began her career at Southern California Edison 41 years ago as a file clerk in the Phone Center. She advanced to a Principal Manager in the Accounts Payable department, becoming the first African American senior manager in the Controllers organization. Pat recently retired from SCE and has launched her own business, Ventress Click Ventures LLC (VCV). In addition to her outstanding reputation as a valued Edison employee, Pat is well known for her mentorship, community service involvement, and partnerships with many associations.
Pat currently works with small businesses to help them achieve their dreams. Her coaching style is inclusive, engaging with each client and meeting them where they are in life without judgement or criticism, just support.
Pat’s affiliations exemplify her emphasis on education and personal development, service and diversity, and providing a positive environment for children. So it is quite fitting that Pat steers her life according to Martin Luther King’s words, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy.”
