As Managing Partner with the Norris Auto Group, Pat experienced the power of the Jim Doyle philosophy of concentration and marketing focus first hand and saw his business grow over 25%; reaping millions more in annual revenue. Pat understands the hard decisions a business owner makes in advertising spending and the need to get quantifiable results on the investment. Now he utilizes his hands-on experience of the JDA strategies to help other local businesses substantially grow their sales.
Pat was with the Norris Auto Group for over 16 years. The Norris Auto Group is a collection of 5 retail, multi-brand automobile dealerships and 2 motor sports stores. His success was directly attributed to his ability to develop advertising strategies that cut through the ‘advertising noise’ and got results. After his career in the retail automobile business, Pat joined the Market Access Group, a private equity firm, as the VP of Marketing and Sales. He worked alongside entrepreneurial business owners, developing marketing plans and installing successful sales practices for auto dealers, retailers, and a variety of small businesses.
Pat graduated from Michigan State University with a BS in Marketing and Business Development and from the General Motors School of Retail Management. He’s the proud recipient of the 2003Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award and numerous Community Civic Awards for his community involvement and business leadership.
Pat believed so much in the Jim Doyle marketing philosophy, and experienced the success it brought his businesses, that “I joined the company!”
Pat lives in the Cleveland, Ohio area and enjoys fishing, golf, motorcycle touring, skiing, boating, and spending quality time with his 2 daughters, one who is pursuing her Doctorate at the Ross School of Veterinarian Medicine and the other is a senior in Health and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University.
