About Our Founder: Patrick Conboy
Patrick Conboy first glimpsed the future of ELDERLUXE® and his idea to Age Well© back during his later teen years, while delivering pharmaceuticals and home medical equipment for a local pharmacy in his hometown of Palestine, Texas. Spending hours with those convalescing and rehabilitating taught him that age-related issues can hamper an otherwise happy lifestyle.
Further, he soon recognized that those who remained most active in their personal daily activities tended to live a more vibrant, healthy and happy life as a result. He applied what he learned in those days to help his own parents as they aged, and ultimately dedicated his life to furthering his cause to Age Well with his retail store, ELDERLUXE.
Prior to creating the ELDERLUXE® enterprise, Mr. Conboy was a Vice-President in the marketing and planning department during the turnaround of JCPenney 1999-2004 and prior to that worked directing the advertising activities for a variety of clients while at Foote, Cone & Belding, Chicago.
He has served on a number of boards, including:
Board Member: International Council on Active Aging (ICAA)
Board Member: Global Retail Marketing Association (GRMA)
Board Member to 2013: Notre Dame Club of Chicago
Former Board of Directors Dallas 2012 Olympic Committee (2002)
Founding Board Member Texas (Lone Star) Academy of Television Arts and Sciences-The EMMY awards(2003)
A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Patrick enjoys tennis, golf, upland bird hunting and creative cooking.
