Patrick O'Neill (San Diego), originally from Honolulu, HI, leads strategic partnerships at Founder Sport Group, acting as Vice President for this private equity backed apparel manufacturing business located in Charlotte, NC and San Diego, CA. Prior to his time at Founder Sport Group, Mr. O’Neill worked in private equity within CCMP Capital's consumer retail and healthcare practice based out of New York City. He graduated from Brown University with a BA in Business Entrepreneurship and minor in Environmental Engineering. In his free time, Mr. O’Neill enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors, but more recently has committed a significant time to his entrepreneurial venture co-founding and managing Boat Racing, LLC, a thoroughbred horse racing syndicate where the most recent purchase, Hot Rod Charlie, ran in the Kentucky Derby in May of 2021. 

Patrick's devotion to the MRA cause stems from both his uncle and father passing from melanoma at young ages -- 38 and 57, respectively -- which is why proceeds from Boat Racing, LLC winnings have been donated to the foundation.
