Mitch joined the Agency Software, Inc. staff in October, 1990 after graduating from the University of Idaho with a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems. Three months later his National Guard unit was activated for Operation Desert Storm, where Mitch spent the next ten months as a systems administrator for the US Air Force. During that time Mitch wrote three programs that were used at Air Force bases across the United States.
After Desert Storm, Mitch returned to Coeur d'Alene where he started writing the Par5 Proposal System, which was his first commercially successful software package. Mitch bought Agency Software, Inc. in May of 1992. To date he has written 13 different insurance software systems that have been sold to nearly 20,000 agencies across the United States, Canada, and Europe.
Mitch's hobbies include flying our company airplane across the country to meet customers, following the Gonzaga college basketball team, fishing (although he is not good at it), and chasing his three children around the house.
