Patrick King, founder of Manassas-based Imagine Design and past president of AMADC, has died.
“Many non-profit boards had the benefit of his passion and wisdom and will enjoy the results of his creativity in problem-solving and innovative solutions for years to come. His generosity extended to every person he encountered,” stated Charles Gilliam, Leadership Prince William.
According to King’s LinkedIn profile, “Since founding Imagine in 2004, Patrick’s expertise in brand consulting, strategy and marketing has helped top brands like CenturyLink, Nestle, Comcast, Jim Beam, as well as destinations throughout the United States and abroad. His business and marketing advice has been published in Inc. Magazine, SmartCEO, Washington Business Journal, The Washington Post, Comcast Business, and Chief Marketer, among other publications.

“Patrick serves on several boards of directors including those of George Mason University’s SciTech Advisory Board, Leadership Prince William, and the American Marketing Association. He sits on the judging panels for the International Association of Visual Arts American Business Awards and does pro-bono work for a number of charities.
