Chief Creative Director & Strategist
Pat Scully is widely respected throughout the Southeast for his creative vision, and has a reputation for being an “out-of-the-box” thinker and creative.
After studying Fine Arts at the prestigious Savannah College of Art & Design, Pat began his professional career as a creative in Atlanta working for number of large Advertising Agencies. Pat learned and sharpened his craft by helping companies such as Mohawk Carpet, Coke, MetLife, Kimberly-Clark and the nonprofit American Cancer Society establish creative and leading brands in their industries.
In 2002 he moved his family to Asheville, North Carolina to launch his own digital design firm—Web Shepherds—where, for the next 18 years, he helped hundreds of companies and nonprofits create memorable and effective brands.
During those years, he met and began doing work with Jeff Hopeck and his marketing firm, Killer Shark Marketing. And in the summer of 2018, Pat and Jeff decided to merge their two firms creating a new version of Killer Shark offering not only marketing and consulting, but also world-class design and creative for both print and digital. Killer Shark has since become known as a powerhouse in the branding and marketing realms.
Pat and his wife Alyssa (who he met in kindergarten) have enjoyed a fruitful marriage of 22 years, and share the responsibility of raising their four children—3 teenagers and a 3 year old toddler.
Although running a business and raising a family takes time and effort, Pat still makes time to give back.
He and his wife have been foster parents to several children and adopted their youngest and precious special needs son through Bethany Christian Services.
Pat has been a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and also disciples youth and young men in the church and in the community who struggle with addiction and alcoholism.
He has served on staff with Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association where he trained and coached both boys and girls soccer teams. He also gives much his time and talent to Asheville Shield FC, a non-profit soccer club whose goal is to give low income families the opportunity to play the world’s game by never turning a child away for the inability to pay.
Pat co-founded a 501c3 organization called Touch + Lift Ministries. And as a missionary, he does meaningful Christian and humanitarian work in countries like Zambia, Uganda, Honduras and Nicaragua. He has also served several terms on the board of Vision Nicaragua and continues to offer his time as an advisor.
