Patrick Keehan joined the SBDC as a Business Consultant in June 2020 after having interned with the center for several semesters. He earned his MBA from The University of Scranton, as well as his bachelor’s degree in finance, summa cum laude, from Scranton in 2019 with minors in accounting, business leadership and philosophy. He also participated in the University’s Business Leadership Honors Program.
Keehan was among the select members of the University’s undergraduate class of 2019 honored for academic excellence at graduation. He received the University’s Excellence in Finance Award. He was a member of Alpha Sigma Nu, Omicron Delta Epsilon, and the IMA Accounting honor societies. He was a graduate assistant and intern at the SBDC for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Patrick believes that any problem no matter how large can be solved with careful planning and the willingness to push through difficulty. From a young age, he has always been amazed by the idea of businesses and how they seek to address a wide assortment of needs. From farming the food that fuels our nation to constructing clean drinking wells in developing countries, the business unit has more than the power to sell trinkets, they have the power to change the world for the better. With a drive to help individuals make an impact in their communities, Patrick provides business consulting services to start-up and existing small business clients in the Scranton SBDC’s service area. He will also help small businesses gain access to, and effectively utilize, interns from local colleges and universities by assisting with the Small Business Internship Initiative.
