I had the privilege of working with him directly when we were both at a previous firm around the same time, which allowed me the opportunity to become familiar with both Matt’s skills as an executive, as well as his vision for how a successful brokerage company should operate. His extensive industry knowledge and outstanding leadership experience make him the ideal candidate, the moment we opened up this new position,” said Chairman & CEO, Kyle Matthews. “I speak for not only myself but the entire company when I say we are excited to welcome Matt to the Matthews™ family and look forward to his contributions with regard to the firm’s expansion into our emerging markets.”
