During his tenure he has served in various leadership roles, such as chairman of the Crossings Improvement District and chairman of the Wildwood Administration & Public Works Council Committee.

In February 2019, Garritano was elected to serve on the board of directors for the Missouri Municipal League.

Professionally, Garritano is a senior project leader with a national financial firm, responsible for managing relationships across multiple departments to deliver a seamless client experience, as well as coordinating strategic activities and projects.
