Patrick Marston


“The Fun Boss”

Patrick is a Principal at Optimal Outcomes, based in St. Petersburg, FL. He is responsible for leading the development of our privately owned projects and maintaining a sense of humor throughout headquarters.

Prior to founding Optimal Outcomes, Patrick worked as an investment banker with Schroeders in New York and real estate lender for Bank of Boston in London. Coming from a career in banking, Patrick Marston wanted to establish himself in a niche with a strong credit driver when he transitioned into commercial real estate development 22 years ago.

I really wanted to be involved in bricks and mortar as I am more of a blue-jeans type of guy and have been enthralled with construction. I was also interested in the equity side of business.

He found it within healthcare-related projects. Since the founding of Optimal, Patrick has arranged, structured, and placed over $500 million of real estate financings and is responsible for $300+ million in new development.

His Finance & International Management degree is from Boston University. He is married with three children.
