Mitchell, who previously held the role of chairman, replaces managing director of Silver Lake Kraftwerk Adam Grosser following his resignation from the NVCA board.
She will hold the role until 2016.
Mitchell previously joined the NVCA board as a director in 2007 and then later served as chairman from 2010 to 2011.
The board chairman Scott Sandell said, “We are excited to have Kate rejoin the NVCA team. She was a standout player when she first joined the board as a director and later demonstrated exceptional leadership as chairman.
“Kate did a tremendous job pushing the JOBS Act across the goal line in 2012, and the expertise and energy she brings to the board will be highly valuable as we work to move the needle in other policy areas important to the venture community.”
The latest NVCA report revealed that the second quarter of this year was the slowest quarter for venture capital-backed mergers and acquisitions since early 2013 in the US.
