Mike Schwartz

President

Mike Schwartz is entering his fourth year on the YLD Board. Originally from Buffalo, NY, Mike graduated from The Ohio State University before moving to Chicago in 2008. Professionally, Mike is Vice President at the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA), where he oversees the strategic direction of programs and services for one of the leading trade associations in the foodservice industry. Over the last ten years, Mike has been active within the Chicago Jewish community - particularly within YLD. Mike currently lives in Lincoln Park with his wife, Jamie, whom he was fortunate enough to meet through YLD programming. In his spare time, Mike enjoys rooting passionately for Buffalo sports teams. He also heads back to Buffalo every year to lead High Holiday services at the University at Buffalo Hillel. Mike is humbled and excited to serve as YLD president for the upcoming board year and is looking forward to all that the board will accomplish together.
