Welcome to our company, and thank you for checking us out.
I’m Pat, and I’m the CEO and Founder of WISE Digital Partners. Over the last 15 years, I’ve started a half dozen businesses, and I currently own, or am involved in several operating companies. My passion is marketing and helping other business owners understand how marketing works. I am an investor and I view our marketing as an investment. Digital provides us unparalleled insights into the data behind our efforts. If you know how to read it, you can control it, and your investment returns. That’s what our team at WISE Digital Partners is here to help you learn.
Over the years my companies have been featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Pando, TechCrunch, and numerous industry-specific publications. I’ve had the opportunity to work with national and global brands such as the NFL, Warner Bros. Records, and NBC Universal, as well over a thousand small and medium-sized businesses across the United States. The Deal Current Network, a software company I was the Co-Founder and President of, was listed in Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of ‘100 Most Brilliant Companies’ in 2011 and later acquired by a global media company. Lightpost Digital, a division of Deal Current, morphed into a stand-alone digital marketing agency that franchised nationwide, and was also later acquired under my reins as CEO. I am currently a contributing member of the Forbes Councils, an invitation-only network of executives in successful media strategy, creative, and advertising agencies.
Working with Pat
I feel like getting to know me is easy. I have a fairly versatile business background, and love talking about it. I’ve had success and certainly have had my share of failures. I’m direct when I speak, and I really try to provide context and background to my opinions, especially when it comes to marketing and business strategy. I am here to provide access to my team, but I’m also more than willing to provide education. Digital is confusing but it doesn’t have to be. It just takes an explanation in plain language.
