The Hambrick Group
works with clients in several ways.

Patricia Hambrick, a 20-year global marketing veteran, frequently serves as interim Chief Marketing Officer or GM for organizations unsure of how to solve a specific marketing challenge. By immersing herself in the organization, Pat is able to define business goals and strategies, provide an understanding of consumer needs with implications for product positioning, and implement and/or identify the resources needed for execution of those strategies. Pat will often hire a permanent VP, and then consult periodically to make sure the organization stays well positioned for future growth.

In other cases, Pat might work on a project basis to help the client to better understand a problem and recommend actionable solutions. In addition to her own expertise, she often brings in best-in-class professionals for a range of functions depending on the needs of the clients.
