Pat Altvater, President and CEO

I bring 15 years of sales and marketing experience with me to AFP Marketing. Teaching individuals to showcase their expertise and embrace success in a FUN, joyful manner is my mission which I accomplish with group presentations, consulting and video production engagements as well as through the Elite Experts Network.

Sales career highlights: I was an award winning Area Vice President of Sales with Adaytum Software and in one year’s time, took a district that was 78th of 81 to 4th at Doncaster! In my various positions, I won top gun sales awards myself along with leading my teams to exceed quotas on a regular basis.

As an entrepreneur, I opened 10 franchised women’s only fitness facilities and took them to profitability within the first year. I was featured as a childhood obesity expert on Fox TV News and have been quoted in numerous newspaper stories. I also created and hosted the Moms Outsmarting Obesity Tele-Summit. During this time period, 2002 – 2009, I discovered what it takes to be seen as an expert on the Internet. I learned about Internet marketing, SEO, social media, local search marketing and Internet video marketing. All of this knowledge led to the creation of the Elite Experts Network.

My education includes a master’s degree from Virginia Tech and a bachelors from Michigan State University. I am a member of the the Maumee Chamber, Rainmakers and NAWBO, the National Association of Women Business Owners, where I am currently the President of the Cleveland chapter.

I am the author of Choose Success – Ignite the Power Within. Having a success mindset and helping others achieve their goals is the key to my own success!
