Spend a little time with Patrick Fitzgerald, the Mattawan Branch Manager, and you understand the bench strength he brings to Kalamazoo County State Bank. Sports are an important part of Patrick’s daily life and have guided him throughout his career. Patrick brings these leadership skills to the Bank during the day. And in his free time, you will find him coaching and playing sports with his family.
Patrick joined Kalamazoo County State Bank in 2019 as Branch Manager of the Mattawan Office. As the Bank continues to grow and serve a broader, more diverse customer base, Patrick has the banking expertise and personal customer service skills that KCSB customers rely on for all their financial needs.
“I chose to work at KCSB because I like being a part of the community,” said Patrick. “I like to volunteer at the schools whether it is coaching, filling snack bags for the Wildpacks or helping at a school Christmas party. KCSB is involved in many things that help the community and living in Mattawan, I felt this Bank was a perfect fit.”
With over 20 years of banking experience, Patrick gained his bench strength in banking by moving through the ranks in credit cards, collections, operations, commercial loans, health care and treasury management at National City, now PNC Bank in Kalamazoo. In his last position, Patrick was a Loan Analyst providing consistent service and quality.
Patrick has an Associate Degree in General Studies from Kalamazoo Valley Community College, a Bachelor of Science in Management and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) both from the University of Phoenix.
When not in the Bank, Patrick enjoys spending his free time with his family. Patrick and his wife have 2 children and 2 dogs. “In addition to coaching my children, we enjoy playing all sports together in our free time,” said Patrick. “We enjoy exploring Michigan and taking yearly trips in the summer to different parts of this great state. Every spring we spend time in Cocoa Beach, Florida and are a big Disney family!”
