Patron Technology’s mission is to revolutionize the arts & entertainment industry by helping our customers build stronger and more profitable relationships with their patrons. We help them do this with PatronManager, a CRM system that combines box office ticketing, fundraising, marketing, and staff collaboration, built entirely on the cloud-based Salesforce platform. Since launching in 2010, PatronManager has been the fastest growing platform for arts & culture organizations in the U.S. Over 600 organizations use PatronManager, primarily symphony orchestras, theatres, opera companies, dance companies, university performing arts centers, and museums.

Patron Technology was founded by Eugene Carr, a multi-faceted innovator and professionally trained cellist who served as Executive Director of New York City’s American Symphony Orchestra and then started, the first to bring cultural event listings and online ticketing to AOL in the 1990’s. Mr. Carr founded Patron Technology in 2001 with Ross Kudwitt, and the company quickly became the leader in e-marketing technology for arts non-profits with its first product, PatronMail.
