Biography

Pat Croce graced the cover of Success magazine as the first person to ascend from the training room to the boardroom of a professional sports team. His remarkable success as a physical therapist and pioneer in the sports medicine field to the colorful leader responsible for the resurrection of the Philadelphia 76ers as a NBA championship contender has been defined as one of the most amazing stories in sports history.

Through his business savvy, dynamic personality, and emphasis on customer service, Croce created Sports Physical Therapists, a sports medicine empire of 40 centers in 11 states, into a top-ten finalist for the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Following the sale of his company, Croce focused his entrepreneurial spirit and indestructible positive attitude on the purchase of the NBA's last place team, the Philadelphia 76ers in 1996. During his 5-year tenure as President, the team rose from worse to first in the NBA standings and broke franchise records in attendance, revenue, merchandise, and consecutive wins on the way to the NBA Championships against the Los Angeles Lakers in 2001.

As a serial entrepreneur, Croce has been the proud recipient of the “Entrepreneur of the Year” Award, featured on the cover of Inc magazine as “The Dale Carnegie of the 21st Century,” and honored with A&E Biography’s “Community Hero” Award. He is Chairman of Pat Croce & Company that has controlling interests in numerous restaurants and museums, one of which is the internationally-acclaimed St Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum.

Pat Croce is a New York Times best-selling author, nationally-renowned motivational speaker, a commentator for the Summer Olympic Games on NBC for the sport of Taekwondo, and has been a lively guest on Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, Howard Stern, Bryant Gumbel, Good Morning America, Today Show, ESPN, and CNN Breaking News shows.
