24 Hour Company was founded as a traditional graphic design firm in 1992 by Dennis Fitzgerald. Realizing the opportunity to focus on an underserved niche market in the Washington, DC area, Dennis transitioned the company into one whose primary clients are business development professionals who bid on government and commercial contract work. To provide a growing client base with unique, new services, the company added Mike Parkinson as a partner in 1999.
To offer the highest quality “bid-winning” proposal graphics, desktop publishing, web site design, marketing design, and training.

Dennis Fitzgerald founded the company in 1992 which has become the only graphic design firm that covers the bid and proposal market exclusively. Dennis built his business management skills from scratch, focusing on the basics of sales, finance, marketing, recruiting, HR, and accounting.
He attributes much of his success to learning by “failing forward.” If it had not been for mentoring relationships with successful entrepreneurs like his dad, business-savvy colleagues, and members of the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), it could have been disastrous!
