Our History

Front center: Captain J. Fitzpatrick; Guidon of ROTC class & only one accepted as Pilot upon graduation; Former B-52 Bomber Pilot

As a daughter of a Pan Am Captain, I was one of the countless families affected by the bankruptcy of Pan Am Airlines.

I was in my last year at University of Florida. It was an emotional time knowing my Dad lost his livelihood, his career, his passion. I was also impacted by the enormity of this corporate legend’s decline that changed the lives of the 20,000+ employees and their families.

My passion to help organizations maintain their greatness was born.

I spent the next 18 years working in marketing, human resources, operations, and IT within government, healthcare, non-profit, small and national corporations.

Regardless of the industry or size, we can apply a lesson learned from Pan Am:  Even the best organizations can fall. The most ambitious leaders understand they must continue to evolve their organization whether it is due to internal or external influences, such as:  changes in a team, antiquated processes, new technology, change in politics or improved competition.

This is where Caden Group comes in.
