The vision for 1Path’s Consulting division, Blu North, started with 1Path’s Chief Strategy Officer, Patrick Kinsella. Drawing upon his years of experience working in enterprise IT consulting at a “big four” shop, Patrick built a team of Chief Transformation Officers (CxOs) who engage with 1Path clients and partners. From small and medium size businesses to Fortune 100 companies, Blu North’s team was launched to help clients drive business outcomes through technology strategy, workflow optimization, and transaction advisory. Blu North represents the first milestone in 1Path’s strategic growth beyond traditional managed IT services, led by Patrick.
Prior to launching Blu North, Patrick was the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at 1Path, where he led the team that develops 1Path’s comprehensive technology service offerings and innovative products, in addition to managing 1Path’s internal technology and cybersecurity posture. Patrick’s experience is drawn from many other areas including sales and engineering leadership for a semiconductor business development firm, ERP design & implementation at global healthcare and financial services companies and co-founding a successful wireless internet startup. Patrick also serves on a 501(c)(3) advisory board for Metropolitan Youth Symphonies of Atlanta, providing opportunities for children to explore their potential through musical performance, ensemble training, and scholarship awards serving the Atlanta youth music community.
Patrick earned a BS in Operations Research & Industrial Engineering from Cornell University and an MBA in Finance from the Emory University Goizueta Business School. He holds a US patent on solid state lighting control.
