Patrick Harrison is a Kinesiologist and designer of the CoreChair. His first successful business focused on the design of specialized seating solutions for individuals who were dependent on wheelchairs for mobility. In 2008, Patrick leveraged this experienced-based knowledge to create the CoreChair, an active sitting solution for deskbound employees. He has become a source of knowledge for individuals and corporations to identify health risks manifesting as back pain and metabolic disorders and to implement solutions in the workplace. Patrick is a classic serial entrepreneur who chooses to run his own ventures as a CEO rather than larger entities. Previous business successes have resulted in acquisition events that have freed Harrison up to pursue new opportunities.
