Third Board Appoints Robert Mutchnick

During a special meeting on Tuesday, October 29, the Third Mutual board appointed its newest director, Robert Mutchnick, who will serve a one-year term ending in 2020.

Director Mutchnick served as president for eight years at his previous homeowners association, a gated, 200-unit community in South Carolina with amenities similar to those of the Village. 

As a full-time professor and chairman of the criminology department at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Director Mutchnick was responsible for an annual budget of more than $3 million, 30 faculty and two full-time staff. He represented 15,000 higher education members and negotiated contracts for a $147 million health care policy as chairman of a health care cost containment committee. He also he secured a four-year contract for approximately 6,000 faculty members at 14 universities as a member of a statewide negotiating team.

“My goals as a Third Mutual board member are very simple,” wrote Mutchnick in his personal statement. “One: transparency, so that residents have the opportunity to express their opinions on all issues; two: fairness, so that rules and policies are applied equally to all; and three: decision-making, so that all decisions are made with consideration to both the short- and long-term interest of the Village and its residents.”
