Patrick is the Founder of Outsource Marketing, a pioneering company that offers a marketing department for companies that don’t have one, more strategic and creative horsepower for those that do. He speaks nationally on Responsible Marketing, new and innovative ways to break through the clutter, social media, and marketing outsourcing and his articles have been published in local and national publications.
Prior to starting the firm in 1997, Patrick directed the marketing for two Seattle law firms as well as a Northwest-based telecommunications company. His experience in hiring, managing and coordinating a bevy of biased and uncoordinated marketing resources led to the formation of Outsource Marketing . . . a company that seamlessly delivers coordinated, discipline-neutral marketing to companies of all sizes.
An advocate of marketing education, Patrick instructed the evening Integrated Marketing Communications course at the University of Washington from 1998-2002 and serves on the marketing program’s advisory board. He regularly donates his time mentoring students interested in a career in marketing and has served on the boards of the Puget Sound chapter of the American Marketing Association, KidsQuest Children’s Museum and the Issaquah Schools Foundation.
In September, 2003, Patrick was recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as a 40 Under 40 honoree.
He is a graduate of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.
