Alan Fitzgerald, an ASU engineering graduate, began his career at Motorola, then consulted with technology firms in Arizona until 1985 when he founded Adtron Corporation.
For twenty-three years Adtron specialized in the development and production of solid-state disk technology and in 2001 Adtron was the 3rd fastest growing Arizona-based private technology company. The company sold in 2008 to a NASDAQ listed technology firm SMART Technologies.
After retiring from SMART in 2010, he opened Art Intersection with galleries, photography arts lab, and workspace that serves as a resource center for both emerging and established artists. In 2011 the Fitzgerald family collaborated with Banner Health to establish Banner Neuro Wellness in Gilbert serving people suffering from neurological movement disorders, principally Parkinson’s Disease.
