Mel Lavitt

Senior Advisor, Needham & Company

My professional career has been in investment banking with C.E. Unterberg, Towbin and its successor firms. Currently I am a Senior Advisor to Needham & Company, an advisor for a number of private companies, and Chairman of Incentives for the Governor’s Office of Economic Development in Utah. The growth of Utah as a “Destination State” for business has given me an opportunity to use my background and experience to provide financial guidance and advice to early stage companies and their entrepreneurs. My wife Wendy and I live in Park City where the skiing and biking are world class.
