Milwaukee Jewish Federation >> Shimon G. Levy
Captain (Res.) Shimon G. Levy has been calling Detroit home since 2015. In addition to being an enthusiastic entrepreneur and investor, he is currently the Chief Operating Officer of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
Before his present role, he founded the Student Led Trips Initiative, empowering Law School and Public Policy students to take their peers on a life changing journey through their lens to Israel. In 2015, the initiative merged into IsCo (now iTrek). He previously served as the Senior Strategic Advisor at the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and Principal at Secret Sauce Capital, a boutique venture capital and private equity firm. Shimon’s most recent venture, Northend Capital, focusing on ancillary businesses to the real estate market, was acquired in December 2018.
Shimon is an avid community advocate, working and volunteering locally and globally to support Jewish community, fight antisemitism, and change the discourse around Israel. Shimon is a proud graduate of the University of Haifa, IDC Herzliya, and the Harvard Kennedy School where he was fortunate to represent his class as the 2014 commencement speaker. He loves renovating (while complaining) his 1925 German Tudor, people, traveling, and big ideas that impact.
