Meet Brokerage Account Executive Michael Kertelits. Mike got his start in the industry in 1994, and has been an integral part of RMI's Non-Profit Brokerage team for the last 15 years.
Mike's passion for Non-Profits is personal. Early on in his career, he was offered two jobs, one working with Non-Profits, the other working with Business to Business. For him, the choice was clear, "I thought it would be great to help raise money for people and causes that needed it so I chose the non-profits side. Ironically, I worked with JDRF for many years, then when my son turned 9, he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It was rewarding to see that the money I helped raise for them would be used in research that hopefully one day will lead to a cure to his disease."
