“It’s almost impossible to find a single person who can think at 10,000 feet and 10 feet off the ground in the same day. I’d highly recommend Ian to anyone trying to drive revenue by connecting their customer to the product in a more meaningful way. ” -Gabe Cooper, CEO of Virtuous
“Ian Patterson is the best product leader that I have had the honor of partnering with in my career. Our company more than tripled revenue growth and team size while Ian served on our leadership team, with much of this growth emanating from areas he directly managed.” -Garrett Johnson, COO of HydraHost and former Executive Director of Lincoln
“Ian did a great job of creating a user experience… that end users LOVED! He especially excelled at creating experiences that had emotional resonance with users, which I think most products lack.” -Mark Williamson, COO of MasterClass
