“My favorite piece of advice has always been, ‘Do today what others won’t, so tomorrow you can do what others can’t.’ It keeps me focused.”
Although Mitch is newer to the industry of finance, he’s been immersed in the First National Bank culture for a while. “I was on the First National GenNext Advisory Board in high school and really enjoyed it; I loved the culture and work environment.”
He spent his last summer in college interning at the Bank. “I learned so much from it that I felt a strong desire to come back and start my career in finance and investments here. First National has given me a wonderful opportunity, and I am grateful for that.”
Outside of work, Mitch enjoys working out, water sports, DIY projects, and spending time with friends and family. He is a car enthusiast and enjoys working on his uncle’s farm near Yankton.
Mitch says he owes a lot to his parents and is grateful for their constant support. The Sioux Falls native and USD graduate is also a volunteer with Repair Affair through the Home Builder’s Association. “I feel fortunate that I can use my construction skills to help improve people’s homes and make life easier and safer for them.” Mitch also volunteers with Christmas Ghosts every December.
He recently graduated from the Beacom School of Business.
