Paul Fitzpatrick


Paul Fitzpatrick is president of the 1792 Exchange and an at-large board member of the State Financial Officer Foundation (SFOF). He is also a member of the Private Enterprise Advisory Council serving the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), where he sits on its Tax and Fiscal Policy Task Force.

In 2020, Fitzpatrick worked as deputy chief of staff for Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), a Trump-aligned businesswoman who had been appointed by Republican Governor Brian Kemp for a year before losing the seat to Democratic challenger Raphael Wornock. Prior to that, he served for five years as chief of staff for then Congressman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.). 

Except for these brief stints in the public sector, most of Fitzpatrick’s professional life—nearly 20 years—has been devoted to the Family Research Council, a Christian Right activist organization. He has also served as director of development for the billionaire Koch brothers’ Freedom Partners (now Stand Together).

Fitzpatrick holds a bachelor’s degree from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and an MBA from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia.
