Patrick is the founding partner 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. Prior to starting Outsource in 1997, Patrick directed the marketing for two Seattle law firms and a Northwest-based telecommunications company. His experience 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 organizations seeking responsible results.
An evangelist for Responsible Marketing, Patrick is the purveyor of The Responsible Marketing Blog and speaks nationally on the topic. He also speaks on new and innovative ways to break through the clutter, marketing outsourcing and personal positioning, and his articles have been published in local and national publications. Patrick was recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as a 40 Under Forty honoree (but no longer qualifies for that honor).
He is an advocate of marketing education, and instructed the evening Integrated Marketing Communications course at the University of Washington for five years and serves on the program’s advisory board. He donates his time mentoring students of all ages 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.
He is a graduate of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.
