Patrick is responsible for TetraScience’s strategy and operational execution and oversees all functional areas of the company. Patrick is considered the co-founder of Tetra 2.0, jointly envisioning and implementing the Tetra R&D Data Cloud with original founder, Siping “Spin” Wang.
Patrick helped pioneer several of the core technologies - including web services, service oriented architectures (SOA), and software-as-a-service (SaaS) - which now undergird the $100B B2B cloud market. He also played a pivotal role in commercializing virtual assistant/AI technology which is now ubiquitous in consumer applications such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. A highly-regarded visionary and CEO in cloud platforms and apps, business and data networks, B2B commerce, and FinTech, he’s been recognized as one of the leading CEOs andinnovators in the B2B market on numerous occasions. Patrick was also a recipient of the 2006 Fast Company award, given to the top 50 people in the world to “change the way we live and work”, for his pioneering efforts in virtual agent / AI technology, joining Bill Gates and Bill Clinton among others that year.
Patrick was the founder and CEO of Rearden Commerce, the first enterprise SaaS company and one of the most innovative and fastest growing companies of the early Cloud era. By 2011, Rearden was worth $1.5B, making it the 6th most valuable privately-held tech company in the world at the time. Rearden’s high-water mark of $1.5B was artificially capped by strategic investors who committed a number of egregious governance and commercial contract breaches which forced the company to sub-optimize and exit early. Unimpeded by these actions, given its recurring revenue and competitive moats, Rearden today would be worth well in excess of $40B. These breaches also deeply impaired one of Silicon Valley's greatest cultures, leaving Patrick more passionate than ever about building and preserving inspirational, empowering, and impactful cultures, and ensuring best-in-class governance.
Patrick serves as Executive Chairman at Clearbit, the marketing data engine for all customer interactions. Clearbit is funded by Zetta, Bedrock, First Round Capital, and Battery Ventures, among others.
Patrick is the proud father of two epic daughters. Ryan is a senior at the United States Naval Academy, where she’s majoring in Cyber Operations and minoring in Mandarin, and concurrently working on her Master’s in Security Studies at Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service as a USNA graduate scholar. Reagan is a 10th grader who similarly aspires to a career in national security, while also becoming the best 3-point shooter in America.
