Meet Our Chief Financial Officer
Ervin Szot

As a Polish-American and first-generation college student from Chicago, I've been shaped by a rich tapestry of experiences and backgrounds. Raised in the culturally diverse Avondale neighborhood on the North Side, I inherited values of hard work and resilience from my Polish immigrant parents. Their journey instilled in me a deep sense of responsibility, commitment, and motivation, guiding my academic pursuits, social engagements, and career aspirations.

My connection to Serving People with a Mission (SPM) is deeply rooted in a desire to contribute meaningfully to an organization driven by passion and skill. Inspired by co-founder Jacque Stefanic and supported by personal experiences, I felt drawn to a role where I could make a tangible impact in our communities. Serving as Chief Financial Officer of SPM aligns perfectly with my interests in finance, management, and leadership, offering a unique opportunity for personal and professional growth.

In addition to my role at SPM, I serve as a Junior Analyst at Loyola’s Rambler Investment Fund and work as a Server/Valet at Stardust Banquets & Gala Banquets. These diverse experiences enrich my understanding of finance and management while allowing me to contribute to both academic and community initiatives.
