As an Account Executive, Patrick Neligan draws on his background in public affairs and corporate branding to spearhead the collaborative process while keeping projects on track for success. He is constantly expanding his digital skills and uses his expertise to understand clients’ goals and go above and beyond to realize their visions.
Patrick works to equip clients to reach and inspire new audiences through immersive brand experiences. He believes that digital marketing is so much more than likes and shares and has served clients in the pharmaceutical, law, energy, manufacturing, automotive, and retail industries.
Before joining REQ, Patrick gained crucial DC advocacy experience as part of Honda’s Government Relations office where he worked on strategic campaigns to reach target audiences and communicate the automaker’s political positions. He has also worked for Edelman Public Relations on the agency’s digital team and for Northwestern Mutual where he learned the high value of client relationship building.
Patrick received his BA from Vanderbilt University where he studied English and Philosophy, focusing on Middle English literature. He earned his Graduate Certificate in Social Media Management from Georgetown University and is currently working toward his Master’s in Public Relations & Corporate Communications at Georgetown.
When he’s not learning a new digital platform or software, Patrick spends his life being continuously let down by his beloved Liverpool FC, traveling the world in search of good wine, and making massive messes in his kitchen.
