    Patrick Kritchever

    Chief Marketing Officer & Strategic Advisor

    I have 20 years of experience in leading the execution of go-to-market strategy (GTM), digital marketing, growth marketing, and business development. I have a proven track record of scaling SaaS companies, and direct-to-consumer brands 100-400%. I’ve worked with a range of companies ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies. My global perspective living in New York City and Madrid has shaped how I approach my work - think big.

    Prior to running my own digital agency, I served as Chief Marketing Officer for New York-based startup Hey Hey Gorgeous. During my tenure, I worked with leadership to define and implement marketing strategies for the dual-sided marketplace. In two years, we established ourselves as the premier destination for curated beauty establishments.

    I had the pleasure of being a guest speaker at Columbia University, University of Maryland, and LIM College of Fashion. A native of San Diego, I enjoy traveling, staying active, and spending time with my family.
