Mike is currently the Executive Director of No One Left Behind and has been an Executive Director, CEO, and senior leader at numerous national, global, and local nonprofits. He’s served on the front line of service and been on the Boards of organizations committed to housing, immigration, workforce development, and community. As an innovator and capacity builder, Mike is focused on helping individuals and organizations meet mission.
Mike Mitchell is a dynamic individual with both the passion for driving nonprofits to meet their mission, as well as the courage to lead the way. He will get his hands dirty in the process to realize tangible change in the nonprofit sector. I’ve worked with Mike since 2016, most importantly collaborating on the development of the world’s first refugee resettlement software, Annie™ MOORE, which uses AI (machine learning and optimization) to improve the lives of those served. Mike stands out for his abilities to listen, be patient, bring diverse stakeholders together, and balance often conflicting standpoints. Without compromising on non-negotiables, he delivers the end goal by thoughtfully proposing innovative solutions. Mike is the true definition of a team player, and my life is richer with Mike as a colleague. I trust yours will be too.
Nonprofit collaboration is hard. Even when executive directors get along, developing shared interests, mitigating risks, and getting staff and boards aligned is tough. When Mike was CEO of Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake, Mike did all the above with creativity, trust, and perseverance. Both organizations were better along with those we served.
Mike has a sharp, strategic mind that can map out the big picture, size up the challenges and opportunities, and identify the stakeholders. He has a shrewd business sense that's both entrepreneurial and practical. I'm always kind of amazed by the way he can articulate a key concept or idea in a refreshing way that simplifies and clarifies and ultimately energizes a whole team to get back to work. Mike's also just fun to work with. He's a good listener and has a delightfully unassuming communication style that is enthusiastic and collaborative.
I worked with Mike for the years he was employed by HIAS. We were so pleased with Mike’s innovative processing of tough situations, along with his friendly and open manner, that we brought him to meet with our community leadership, staff, and clients to help us get to our next level. Mike is a great outside the box thinker, who understands the need for “the box”! He’s able to work well within an organization’s culture while strategically moving it toward its desirable goals. He is also very kind and genuine, and people gravitate towards him.
