Fitzpatrick, Jr., founding member and shareholder at the law firm of Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba, P.C. has been named to the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the only state-wide private/public organization represented by a broad array of private sector and development interests, works toward attracting, retaining and expanding business and employment opportunities.

Team Pennsylvania collaborates in combining public and private sector strengths to improve economic prosperity for Pennsylvania and its residents.
Commenting on Mr. Fitzpatrick’s election to the Board, Ryan Unger, President & CEO of Team Pennsylvania Foundation, stated:
