We Are Nations
Patrick Mahoney has worked in apparel and entertainment merchandising for more than 25 years. Early clients included Oasis, Radiohead and Pink Floyd. But by 2000, Patrick had slid into a specialization working with the youth culture driven music, with bands including Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco, Slipknot and Mudvayne, Weezer, JXDN and Machine Gun Kelly. As surf/skate and snow culture is historically intertwined with music, Patrick has also worked with and collaborated with many of the top lifestyle brands including Volcom, Nike, Hurly and Paul Frank on various crossover projects. Identifying esports as the next disruptive youth culture movement, We Are Nations was established in 2016 by Patrick and long time business associate Chris Cornell as a sister company to Manhead Merchandising, a leading music and entertainment merchandising business. Patrick’s current role is Chairman of the Board of the Nations Group, which oversees not only Nations, but other group companies including Aggregated Media and Nations Ventures, as well as ad hoc advisory roles in the Nations Ventures companies, including Smerf, Reset and Obsesh.
