We are profoundly saddened by the loss of our colleague and friend, Patrick Moran, President & COO at AES Corporation. Patrick passed away in Newton, MA, on May 14, 2020 after a very brief illness.
“Patrick joined AES in November of 2017. Since joining the company, he led the business to new levels of success gaining friendships within the organization, establishing valued relationships with our customers, and so much more. There is no doubt his absence will be felt and he will be missed,” commented Michael Sherman, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Technology Officer.
Moran was a dedicated and loyal AES employee, leading the executive team during his tenure. He worked tirelessly on continuous process improvement efforts and implemented policies in support of the company mission, vision, and values. Patrick was passionate about his work and family. He enjoyed his calling as a strategic advisor in the investment banking industry and as a management consultant. Patrick held multiple degrees from Boston College, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (where he was the first Wolfowitz Scholar), and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. An avid reader and quite the historian, Patrick had an affinity for storytelling and particular passion for the Northern Ireland conflict. His enthusiasm for sharing his extensive knowledge of world history and excerpts from the latest book he was reading is noteworthy.
Moran is survived by his father, a half-sister, extended family and many friends. He is predeceased by his sister Nancy, with whom he was particularly close. Most significantly, he leaves his daughter Lyla, the pride and joy of his life. The family has arranged a private memorial service in Massachusetts where he resided; a celebration of his life and friendship will occur in the near future, when gatherings of friends and family are appropriate. In lieu of flowers, if you’d like to donate a charitable gift in Patrick’s honor, please donate to St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio (www.ignatius.edu/give).
