Pat Croce
Pennsylvania

Photo of PAT CROCE 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. It has been defined as one of the most amazing stories in sports history. 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 an NBA championship contender is even more astonishing.

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 to the purchase of the NBA's last place team, the Philadelphia 76ers in 1996. During his five-year tenure as President, the team rose from worse to first in the NBA standings and broke franchise attendance, revenue, merchandise and consecutive win records on the way to the NBA Championships against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Television has become an exciting part of Croce's hectic schedule. He was a lively commentator on the NBA on NBC television show. He was a founding partner and in-studio host of the sporting world's first extreme team sport and television show, Slamball. He was the commentator for the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Greece covering the Judo and Tae Kwon Do events, and he is currently the host of the nationally syndicated television series, Pat Croce: Moving In. Ever the entrepreneur, Croce is also creating a pirate museum (Pirate Soul) in Key West, Florida.

In addition to being the recipient of the "Entrepreneur of the Year" Award and the Sales & Marketing Managagement magazine's "Best Motivator" Award (2001), Croce received A&E Biography's "Community Hero" Award (2002) and was featured on the cover of Inc magazine as "The Dale Carnegie of the 21st Century."

Croce, a nationally renowned motivational speaker, is also the author of the New York Times bestseller I Feel Great and You Will Too! as well as 110%: 110 Strategies for Feeling Good Everyday. His latest book, Lead or Get Off the Pot, was released in May, 2004. In addition, Running Press has released a series of journals as daily motivational tools, Pat Croce's Victory Journal and Do It Now!.
