Patricia Casale

Vice President (retired), AOL Time Warner
Trustee

Patricia Casale is an executive-level marketer and creative leader with 30 years experience building consumer brands in global markets. Prior to her retirement, she was engaged in a position of leadership during a period of time that fundamentally reshaped global media content, information dissemination, and marketing communications across both traditional and digital media platforms.

Casale's career in international marketing and advertising for iconic brands took her from her home base in Boston around the world. In the mid 1990s, she joined the relatively unknown company America Online and helped reshape it from a one-dimensional paid subscription service into a major advertising force. At AOL Time Warner, she had oversight of the company’s global marketing solutions ad strategy group, headquartered in New York. Prior to joining AOL, Casale held a number of senior executive positions at Boston’s largest ad agency, working globally for a broad-ranging portfolio of brands in technology, travel, consumer goods, fashion, finance, and the automotive industry. 

A music enthusiast and pianist who was captivated by the dynamic collaboration of music and education that is at the core of Berklee’s mission, Casale served as vice chair of the Board of Trustees for three terms as well as chair of the Berklee Vision 2025 marketing strategy, helping to expand Berklee’s global and strategic position. She served on the president’s advisory board at Georgetown University and has contributed as an advisor to several other educational boards and startups. She and her husband reside in Boston.
