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.
