Meet Our Team: Mike Banks

We would like to introduce you to each of our team members. This week, please meet Mike Banks, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Compliance Officer.

What is your background?

I grew up in California, but am glad to say that I have been in Texas my entire adult life. I married my college sweetheart, and we’ve raised our two sons and daughter here in Austin – the town we will always consider home. I started my career as an engineer from Texas A&M but gravitated to business and finance after getting my MBA from The University of Texas – a great combination and always good for a spirited alumni conversation. I spent the first part of my career at Deloitte, a great training ground and firm. I have since worked with several growth companies helping build the finance and operations areas to scale.

What do you look forward to at Venturi every day?

We are a young, dynamic, and highly capable firm with a clear vision. I love to come in each day, see our team excited to help our clients and tackle the constantly changing priorities as we grow. Each day, I am either starting a new challenge or finishing an existing project. There is a great sense of fulfillment in putting the pieces in place for what we already know will be a sustainable, successful firm that will help families for years to come.

What are you currently working on or reading?

At Venturi, we just finished our annual planning process and are completing new investment vehicles. At home, I am reading a running book by Dean Karnazes … hoping for personal inspiration.

Outside of work, what are you doing?

We are starting to plan a trip to Guatemala to take our two youngest (adopted) children to see the beautiful country where they were born. It will be one of the most important and rewarding vacations in our lifetime.
