Business Leader. Mitch has been Chairman and CEO of several commercial finance companies, a senior executive at two banks, a member of the Board of Directors of several non-profit organizations and is currently on the Board of the Barney School of Business at the University of Hartford.  

Teacher. Mitch and a colleague developed a popular course on personal finance for the University of Hartford. He’s also been teaching it since its fall 2009 debut.
