Patrick Farley is the owner and CEO of Military Prestige Marketing, a global sales organization specializing in luxury product distribution to retail outlets (PX’s/BX’s) located on U.S. military installations around the world.
Patrick was introduced to the opportunities of the military resale systems in 1989, when he was hired as a Territory Manger for a military/duty free fragrance distributor.
