About Pat Hull

Serial Entrepreneur | Revenue Generation Coach | Startup Advisor


Pat Hull has spent a lifetime creating, launching and guiding successful companies and investments. In 1998, Hull revolutionized the transportation industry when he founded GetLoaded.com, the first online freight matching service for long-haul truckers. Currently, Hull serves on the boards of several companies across multiple industries.

He has successfully led two of his companies through public acquisitions. In 2008, after leading GetLoaded.com to national prominence, Hull sold the company to Roper Technologies (NYSE: ROP), a diversified company, for approximately $80 million. In 2002, he founded FreightCheck, a freight bill factoring service which he later sold to Bibby Financial Services.

“I’ll never forget Mr. Hull saying to me, ‘You’re going to have ups and downs and plenty of obstacles. Just remember to keep doing it and have fun while you’re doing it.’ Those words set the foundation for how I would build and operate my small business.”
