Patrick Nagle: Strategic Development, Client Relations, Event Coordination

After 5 successful years in corporate sales with Johnson and Johnson’s Ethicon Endo Surgery, I was able to follow my dream and passion and open one of the first microbrewery/restaurants in downtown Tacoma in 1997. As Founder and Managing Partner I oversaw the design and buildout of a 15-barrel brewery system and 250-seat restaurant in the Historic Harmon Building. Over 20 years The Harmon grew into 5 locations and over $8MM in sales.
Having spent the last 22 years in restaurants and real estate – Sound and Shore Properties – I shifted my time and energy into building our marketing and technology solutions company – The Collaborative Marketing Group. Team building and culture is my passion. Team sports and camaraderie have always been a big part of my life – the joy of supporting and challenging each other to be the best is so much sweeter when successful together. This is the essence of the Collaborative Marketing Group – working together – supporting and challenging each other through divergent thinking we bring the right story to the right people…collaboratively.
