Mitchell Draizin was drawn to the Point by reading about its Mentor Program about five years ago. Since that time Mitchell has been a Mentor to one of the NYC based scholars. He and his partner of thirty four years, Philippe Brugere has developed a very close relationship with his Mentee and thru him has met and spent time with other current scholars and scholar alumnae. Mitchell and Philippe have also been active as contributors and promoters of the NYC Point Fund Raising Dinners.
Mitchell is the principal of Longview Capital Advisors, Inc which serves middle market NYC real estate developers as a financial advisor as well as mortgage and investment banker.
Mitchell serves as a Trustee at Truman National Security Project/CNP, Advisory Board, Truman National Security Project/CNP, Advisory Board for The New Leaders Council (NLC), NY/NJ Board of Directors for Playworks and Board of Directors for The Congressional Award. In addition to mentoring young people who are entering the real estate and finance professions, he also volunteer teaches a high school course in Economics and Entrepreneurism in two NYC schools.
As a result of his work with young people and very positive experiences with the Point, Mitchell has recently decided to increase his involvement to the Point with the goal of helping the Foundation in its mission and to expand the number of scholars.
