For Dan Fitzgibbons, Minnesota is home, although he wasn’t always there. He actually grew up in Fargo, North Dakota, where he attended Holy Spirit School and Shanley High. At Shanley, he was a member of the SandPebbles singing group and he played football, golf and intramural hockey. In short, he has always wanted to feel a part of the communities in which he lived.
Dan Fitzgibbons’ love of the state of Minnesota probably started when he earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Business Administration from Moorhead State University in that state. After graduation, he eventually moved to Minneapolis for career reasons. Now a prominent member of the Minneapolis community, Dan Fitzgibbons, his beautiful wife and his two wonderful children couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. He has always believed that giving back to the community is the least a business leader can do, which is why he is so active with Minneapolis charities, such as Loaves and Fishes, a very effective charity that feeds the poor. In 2015 alone, they served up more than 450,000 hot meals to those who may have otherwise done without.
