Pat Owings - Co-Founder
With responsibilities that include Finance, Human Resources and Information Technology, Pat’s basically the guy that handles the nitty-gritty and holds the IMA team together on a day-to-day basis. With an advanced degree in Materials Engineering, he’s also your go-to guy for really tough Physics questions.
Pat spent 15 years in technology sales and marketing, where he worked closely with everything from thermal management equipment to oscillators for telecommunications. He’s previously served as a strategic account manager, global account manager, and vice president of sales.
Three years ago, he decided that he was up for a new challenge, and changed industries entirely. Pat transitioned into the transportation industry, serving as both a COO and a CFO. Pat has traveled to over 57 countries, and has racked up over a million miles in air travel. While his interests vary widely, there is one thing that is always at the forefront of his mind: finding the world’s greatest hot dog.
Pat is originally from Indiana but spent the majority of his life in Los Angeles. After the birth of his two sons six years ago, he and his family moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Once he met Bill Faeth, the chance of him having a standard 9-to-5 job was history. This is his fourth successful business venture with Bill, and the pair are always up for the challenge of growing a business from the ground up.
While all of Pat’s business ventures have been exciting, he loves the fact his work at IMA blends creativity with ROI-focused results. He believes that nothing is more satisfying than helping his clients grow their companies and thrive.
