Dr. Mario Enzler has a rich and diverse academic and professional formation. After finishing his studies in Milan, he joined the Swiss Guard and served under St. John Paul II for three years in the double capacity of soldier and conductor of the Swiss Guard Band. Following his time of service at the Vatican, he joined UBS and worked in investment banking and corporate finance. While traveling around the world working in the banking industry, he received professional formation and obtained the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) certifications. He then left the financial world for a full-time work in Catholic education first at the classical-curriculum academy him and his wife founded in NH after moving there to be near his newly-widowed mother-in-law and not finding any adequate educational options for his 5 children and currently at the Busch School of Business and Economics at the Catholic University of America. When he is not in his office or with students in a classroom, he can be often found speaking at conferences or men's retreats where he shares about the role Saint John Paul II had in helping him become a better man, executive, and leader.
