Our People

Patrick M. McKenna, Chief Executive Officer

Patrick’s primary goal as DMi Partners’ CEO is to maximize growth: in profitability for clients, in performance for employees and contractors, and in DMi Partners’ top and bottom-line.

After graduating cum laude from Harvard University, Patrick worked for Joseph P. Kennedy II’s Citizens Energy Corporation where he participated in the start-up of two healthcare ventures. Shortly after returning to Philadelphia, Patrick founded DMi Partners with Adam Weil and his college roommate, James Delaney.

Patrick weaves the Ignatius principle of community service into both his daily life and DMi Partners’ culture. He is a member of the Board of Trustees at YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School and PHMC subsidiary, The Bridge. He is also a lifelong volunteer at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and annually organizes DMi Partners’ participation in the Martin Luther King Day of Service.

Patrick lives in Center City, Philadelphia, with his wife, Michele, and their five children.

James Delaney, Chief Operations Officer

When James Delaney wrote his first resume as a senior at Harvard University, the objective read: “To be part of a developing company that engages in e-commerce, e-communications, and e-business software and services.” Unlike most college seniors, not only did he just become part of a company, he became a founding partner of DMi Partners.

As Chief Operations Officer, James is primarily responsible for network administration, finance, accounting, and software development. Before teaming up with Patrick and Adam to form DMi Partners, James worked with J.G. Wentworth, an advanced funding company located outside Philadelphia.

He attributes his leadership skills to his years spent working as a counselor at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and from his teammates on the rowing teams at St. Joseph’s Prep and Princeton University.

Brian currently lives in Queen Village, Philadelphia with his wife, Kate. When he is not generating leads for our school partners, he spends his time playing flag football, pick-up basketball, and watching the Phillies.
