Patrick Stahl is excited to be a member of the Wisconsin School of Business and the Brand and Product Management Specialization Class of 2019. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, he attended the University of St. Thomas where he earned his BA in Entrepreneurship and Finance.  Throughout his career, Patrick has gained a variety of experiences in the chemicals manufacturing, retail, and software industries.


Prior to commencing his MBA studies, Patrick worked for several companies, both large and small. He began his professional career at Ecolab Inc., where he was selected for the Finance and Leadership Development Program and gained exposure to several Finance departments. At Target Corp., Patrick held roles within Supply Chain and Marketing Finance, where he was charged with forecasting operational and promotional expenses totaling over $100 million annually. During this time, Patrick was fortunate enough to attend a NASCAR race and meet Target’s two sponsored drivers as part of his NASCAR expense savings project. In Patrick’s most recent role as a Project Manager at a retail software company in Atlanta, Georgia, he was responsible for managing two client accounts and the implementation of a combined $9.25 million worth of software modules.


Patrick looks forward to developing his brand and product management skills in addition to deepening his understanding of marketing in general. He hopes to connect these skills to his passion for the automotive and cycling industries and focus on the evolution of these two industries’ products as they become increasingly influenced by material and technological advancements.
