Demetrius D. Patterson is the soft spoken giant and CEO of Diverse Inclusions LLC. Demetrius founded his company after being the managing and creative director for a major hotel chain’s events for over 6 years
While they may have undervalued his work, Demetrius recognized just how special his designs and capabilities were and has used his talent to decorate venues for Nashville’s Finest.
Demetrius distinguished himself from his peers early on. He worked his way up the ladder to become the youngest and only African American in management at a distinguished 4 star Nashville hotel. From 2007 – 2013, he headed up logistics and controlled budgets for entire events. Demetrius’ company, Diverse Inclusions LLC, specializes in corporate/social event management.
Moving in these circles was a far cry from the urban Milwaukee community Demetrius grew up in. While he had to find his way, as many of us do; Demetrius D. Patterson is definitely on a road to greatness.
