“The Industry's Best Faculty!”
Co-Founder & CEO, 11 Honoré
Patrick Herning is a leading executive in brand marketing and influencer engagement, and co-founder and CEO of 11 Honoré, the first size-inclusive shopping site to offer women luxury fashion straight from the runway. His impressive background spans from business development during the initial tech boom of Silicon Valley to fashion, lifestyle and philanthropic clients, projects and major marketing initiatives throughout the country. Patrick was one of the first 50 employees at Cybersource in Silicon Valley responsible for business development for their partner channels. After the company he helped build and grow IPO’d, he held two other business development positions at leading technology companies in Silicon Valley, ultimately culminating in VeriSign’s Payment Services division acquisition to PayPal. From there he relocated to Los Angeles where he formed Fathom Event Strategy, a marketing and communications agency, which was eventually acquired by global communications agency HL Group. After leading business development efforts on the West Coast at HL Group for 5 years, Patrick combined his vast experience, talent for business development and extensive client and influencer relationships to form PMH partners, before teaming up with co-founder Kathryn Retzer to start 11 Honoré.
