AFIT’s Executive Committee is pleased to announce that Mitch Talenfeld, CEO of MDT Marketing in Sunrise, Florida, has been accepted as a new corporate member. Samantha Cornmesser, MDT’s marketing manager, will serve as the organization’s AFIT Rep.
Mitch founded MDT Marketing, a cutting-edge internet marketing agency dedicated to higher education, in 1995. He presently serves as the Allied Director on the Board of Career Education Colleges and Universities, served over a decade as a board member for the Florida Association of Postsecondary Schools and Colleges, and spent several years volunteering as a SCORE mentor assisting business owners in improving their organizations.
Mitch decided to explore AFIT membership at the encouragement of AFIT’s incoming executive director, Erika Liodice. Mitch attended the October CEO Networking Session and immediately saw the value in those monthly peer-to-peer connections, which prompted his decision to apply for membership.
"I have been searching for a platform to make a real difference in the world, and I believe AFIT is an organization that can help me accomplish this goal," said Mitch. “I want to do my part to make the world a better place, and I could not imagine a better way to do that than to share my ideas with the people leading American colleges and universities.”
AFIT is excited to welcome Mitch, Samantha, and the entire MDT Marketing team to our alliance!
