Hi, I’m Patrick Ward. I created ShoreListed to share my expertise on offshoring, staff augmentation, and remote work.
I’ve been involved in nearshoring operations for my entire career, primarily as a marketing and business development director with US-based digital agencies and remote engineering teams in Latin America. My work has helped Fortune-500 companies and fast-growth startups like MasterClass, Google, and more take advantage of the cost savings of mixed onshore/offshore team structures. My remote clients have included Allianz, Cathay Pacific, and Fiji Airways.
My writing on startups and technology has been featured by Forbes, Ad Age, Business Insider, Deloitte, and I’m a current member of the Forbes Communications Council, an invitation-only organization for senior-level communications executives, as well as Ad Age Executive Collective, an invite-only community for marketing and media agency leaders.
In my free time, I’m a die-hard Steelers fan and enjoy the local tech scene in my home base of Los Angeles, where I’m involved with the local tech scene as a community organizer for event series like LinkedIn Local LA.
