We look for Pat to build upon the strong and solid foundation iPipeline has built and I want to thank Deane for her leadership at iPipeline during this interim period.”
O’Donnell brings extensive industry knowledge and experience to this role, having most recently served as CEO of Ministry Brands, the leading provider of software and services for faith-based, non-profit, and other purpose-driven organizations. During more than three years in his role with the organization, O’Donnell played a key role in the company’s success and oversaw a period of transformation and growth.
His experience includes serving as Senior Vice President, and later as President, of FLEETCOR, an Atlanta-based leading global business payments company. O’Donnell also held roles of increasing responsibility, including serving as Senior Division Vice President and Division Vice President of Major Accounts during his nearly 24 years with ADP, a member of the Fortune 500 and a global technology company providing human capital management solutions. O’Donnell is a graduate of West Chester University with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Additionally, he earned the Six Sigma designation and the Project Management Profession (PMP®) certification.
