What Do You Most Enjoy About Your Job:
Investing has always been a hobby for Mitch. He started investing in stocks in 6th grade through a fake money account on, and have been picking stocks ever since.

What Do You Enjoy Most About Working at KAR?
Mitch enjoys the cohesive nature of the team at KAR. The close collaboration helps surface numerous perspectives while progressing an idea through the pipeline. Additionally, the strong working relationships we foster lead to a more open and honest discussion, resulting in a more comfortable environment to share dissenting views. An occasional game of ping-pong or after work happy hour helps keep the team close.

What Are You Involved in Outside of Work?
Whether it is playing a game of pickup basketball, watching college football, or most recently dabbling in pickleball, if it is sports related it has Mitch’s interest. As an Oregon native, it pains him to be in LA Laker territory, so he makes a point to wear his Blazers gear anytime his childhood team is in town. He also loves business podcasts, and usually listens to about 5 shows a week.
