Senior Vice President, Development
A trained civil engineer, Mike Fitzpatrick has extensive experience building communities from the ground up. But his passion for the craft of development began long before he graduated from UMASS Amherst with a BS in civil engineering. “From a very young age I’ve had an interest in building and transforming things from scratch,” he notes. It was this deep-rooted interest in making things that inspired an engineering education and an eight-year career with BSC Group. But, while working on the Hingham Shipyard redevelopment project, Mike was exposed to the dynamic and integrated development model of Samuels & Associates. He was hooked.
As Mike says, “I love challenges. I love uncovering the unique conditions of any given project and then finding the solutions.” As a current SVP of Development working in a vibrant urban environment, these challenges are never in short supply.
