We've spent 50+ years focused on college students, financial aid and smart financing. We built this platform because the current paying for college process is a "one-size-fits-all" approach that does not take into account your family's unique financial position.
Pat has been innovating in higher education and student finance for 35 years. He worked with college clients at First Marblehead Corp through its IPO, and then left to co-found SimpleTuition, an award-winning consumer friendly site that has helped millions of families make sound financing choices.
He took out student loans and worked multiple jobs while an undergraduate at Cornell University and is a great example of the entrepreneurial possibilities attainable with a History degree!
Pat oversees the strategic direction and operations of the company on a day-to-day basis.
