Pat joined Marks Group in 2010 after establishing his own successful advisory practice at Edward Jones. Want hard work and ambition in your advisor? Pat earned his first clients by knocking on doors and introducing himself as the guy who would outwork and outthink the competition. That diligence has paid off for him and the families he advises. Pat is now a Principal with ownership in our firm and the leader of our business building initiatives. He’s a big reason why Marks Group was named one of the 50 Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Twin Cities by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal in October 2016.
Pat also serves on the board of directors at Rise, a local non-profit that works to create career opportunities for people with disabilities and mental health challenges. He and his wife Kelli live in Deephaven and are the proud parents of two daughters, Grayson and Logan. They spend part of every summer on Madeline Island. In the fall, Pat and his dog Kula are an ace pheasant and duck hunting team.
