Trudy FitzsimmonsVice President Laible & Fitzsimmons Inc.
Trudy Fitzsimmons is the Vice President of Laible & Fitzsimmons, Inc. Together with long-time associate,
Katheryn Laible, she founded the Synchronicity Network Newsletter, which draws on decades at the
fusion point of interests to serve and celebrate those who care about Art, Science and the Common Good
on Long Island and beyond.
Trudy has held diverse leadership roles and volunteered across Long Island for over 40 years, starting
with church, school, and local theater groups. In 1998, her employer at Cablevision recognized her
potential and sponsored her participation in a community stewardship organization called Leadership
Huntington. She spent the next 12 years as one of the organization’s most ardent volunteers, attaining a
prominent role on the board, chairing its Curriculum Committee, and strongly supporting organizational
development and program activities. From 2007 to 2014, she served as Leadership’s Program Director,
developing, connecting and engaging everyday people to help them become extraordinary citizens. Trudy
was also an early board member of Long Island’s premier smart growth organization, Vision Long Island.
She has served as that organization’s Co-Chair since 2013.
Other leadership roles have included serving as a Director of the Huntington Township Housing Coalition, President of the Ladies Auxiliary for VFW Post 1469 and Suffolk County as a whole, a Board Member of the Moonjumpers Charitable Foundation, and a Division 2 Coordinator for Suffolk County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
Mrs. Fitzsimmons is a proud mother of four, and a favorite nanny to all five grandchildren.
