Mitchell Glassman

Senior Strategic Advisor

Mitchell Glassman, is a strategic regulatory and financial advisor and a former Director with Deloitte Consulting, LLP. Mitchell has more than 40 years of leadership experience in commercial banking, financial services, and business management. He joined Deloitte from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in January 2011 where he last served as Director of the Division of Resolutions and Receiverships for more than a decade.

During his tenure as Director, Glassman led the FDIC’s successful efforts to resolve hundreds of failed financial institutions, including the resolution of the largest U.S. bank insolvencies in history. He provided leadership over the management and staffing to handle complex portfolios of more than $45 billion in assets, subsidiaries, and $176 billion in structured transactions.

In his client work at Deloitte, Glassman had a dual focus. First, he is focused on helping financial institutions and government clients – both in the U.S. and globally – build and/or modernize their technology infrastructures. Second, his longstanding senior leadership role at the FDIC enables him to strategize with financial services clients globally around what to expect and what must be accomplished as Dodd-Frank Act’s rules continue to unfold. He has extensive knowledge of strategic planning, leadership development, execution, and program management.

Among other career highlights:

  • He directed the FDIC’s Y2K Failed Financial Institution Contingency Planning Task Force, which created comprehensive testing and training to deal with potential institution failures resulting from Y2K.
  • He also served as dean of FDIC’s College of Leadership Development and created a progressive FDIC-wide leadership-training program for the development of future executives.
  • Successfully led multiple projects including the development of an award-winning e-commerce web-based marketing and claims system, technical advisory services on international bank rehabilitations for the State Department, and development of major quality management programs.
  • He has also provided testimony during Congressional hearings and given keynote speeches during international regulatory symposiums.
  • He has been interviewed by NBC’s “Today Show,” CBS’s “60 Minutes,” and Public Broadcast Radio, as well as quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Bloomberg News.

Glassman started his career with the FDIC in Kansas City, MO. He went on to manage bank resolutions for the FDIC in locations around the country. In the 1980s, he was tapped to launch regional liquidation offices in Dallas, Texas, and Kansas City, Missouri, before heading a new branch that managed assistance transactions for multibillion-dollar institutions.
