Patrick fell in love with marketing at an early age, but it is his grandfather who he credits with inspiring his consulting business.
During college Patrick worked as an intern at his grandfather’s plumbing supply business and realized early on how easy it is for small businesses to be confused and overwhelmed by marketing. Patrick witnessed first-hand his frustration and it bothered him to see his grandfather struggle to market his business.
Impacted by what his grandfather experienced, Patrick oriented his education and career toward marketing. While earning his MBA and gaining valuable corporate marketing experience, he never wavered in his desire to simplify marketing for small business owners.
In 2006, Patrick discovered the DuctTape Marketing System—a unique small business marketing system created by award-winning author and blogger John Jantsch. Immediately, its main principle of simplifying marketing for small business owners appealed to Patrick.
Empowered by Duct Tape Marketing, Patrick launched PWG Marketing through which he offers marketing consulting and digital technology coaching services to small businesses. As a Certified Duct Tape Consultant, Patrick provides advice and expertise when needed, accountability and strategy when stuck and proven tactics to help owners systematically build their business.
Patrick has 16 years of corporate marketing and branding experience with Libbey Glass, Calphalon, Microsoft and The University of Toledo and is a founding member of Social Media Breakfast Toledo, a monthly event where people come together to eat, meet, share, and learn about social media.
Patrick also sits on several non-profit boards: the northwest Ohio chapter of the American Cancer Society, Hanna’s Socks and the Advertising Club of Toledo.
Patrick, his wife, Joely and their daughter, Penelope, live in Perrysburg, OH with their dog, Scully.
