Founder & CEO
Patrick Pakan is the Founder and CEO of AKLOS Health, a digital musculoskeletal recovery platform. Patrick graduated from Brown University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. Upon graduating, he worked in investment banking at Goldman Sachs for two years before transitioning to Goldman’s commercial real estate investing platform as a Vice President.
Having played college football and sports all his life, Patrick required 20+ physical therapy programs over the last two decades. His injuries resulted in six orthopedic surgeries and it was Patrick’s own frustrations with the lack of a truly evidence-based digital exercise therapy option that led to the idea for AKLOS Health. He left Goldman Sachs in 2020 to focus full-time on launching the best-in-class solution for digital exercise therapy. As a patient himself 20 times over, Patrick focused on creating a seamless member experience first, then finding the right technology to fit the platform.
