Earlier in his career he was an assistant vice president at First Options in Chicago, and prior to that he was a senior network architect with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Hart received his Bachelor of Industrial Management from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and his MBA from the Lake Forest Graduate School of Management.
