Tim Fitzpatrick moved to Oregon in 1993 after hearing from a family friend that he would make $200 a day painting houses. Tim started Fitzpatrick Painting, Inc. in 1994 while attending Oregon State University. In 2004, after 10 years of painting, Tim hung up his painter whites and brushes to focus on overseeing the operations of the business. These days, his time is spent training the team, working with system development, and marketing—along with, of course, the occasional golf game. Tim and his wife, Kelli, value giving back to the community where they are raising their three children and supporting many community activities.

Joe Van Amburgh has almost 20 years of painting experience along with a desire to lead others and help his company grow and offers much to the Fitzpatrick family. He started painting as a summer job when he was 15 and has worked for several painting companies over the years. During the winter months he worked other jobs in customer service, and although he always worked his way up to management, painting seemed to always pull him back. Before starting at Fitzpatrick Painting he worked at another local painting company where he learned about the construction trade including carpentry, concrete and reading blueprints. This combined with his college experience means Joe can now enjoy the business side of the painting industry. He is excited to bring his experience to this rapidly growing company.
