Mitch is a native Milwaukeean, learning how to swim at the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center, having his Jewish identity molded at the Steve and Shari Sadek Family Camp Interlaken JCC, and developing his leadership skills in BBYO-Wisconsin Region.
Upon returning home to Milwaukee after college and law school, Mitch immediately got involved as a volunteer in the community, participating in Young Leadership at the Federation, becoming a BBYO advisor for the new Nivayim AZA chapter of BBYO-Wisconsin Region, and joining the Camp Interlaken Committee. Throughout the years, Mitch led Young Leadership, Agency Relations, Community Planning and Allocations, was Campaign Chair, lead a Weinstein cohort, and chaired the Camp Interlaken Committee. He remains a BBYO advisor today. After a quick 28-year run practicing product liability litigation at Quarles & Brady, Mitch joined the Foundation as Executive Director in April of 2020.
