Patrick Norris

Patrick Norris is Senior Vice President of Jim Doyle & Associates. Having previously been on “the other side of the table” as an auto group managing partner, he experienced the power of the Jim Doyle philosophy of concentration and marketing focus and the impact it had on his business – growing it over 25% and reaping millions more in annual revenue. He also understands the hard decisions a business owner makes in advertising spending and the need to get quantifiable results on the investment. Now, he uses his hands-on experience with the JDA strategies to help other local businesses substantially grow their sales.

As the Managing Partner of the Norris Auto Group, Pat ran a collection of 5 retail, multi-brand automobile dealerships and 2 motor sports stores. His 16 year 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 2004 Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award and numerous Community Civic Awards for his community involvement and business leadership.

Pat says it best, “I believed so much in the Jim Doyle marketing philosophy and saw the success it brought my businesses, that I joined the company!”

Pat lives in Sarasota, FL and enjoys fishing, golf, motorcycle touring, skiing, boating, and spending quality time with his 2 daughters, one who is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and the other who has an MBA as a licensed Dietician and Nutritionist.
