Matt’s desire in joining PLC Wealth is to help people live according to their values and achieve their most important goals. Matt comes to PLC Wealth with significant industry experience in finance, marketing, sales leadership, and operations.
Matt earned his MBA at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business with concentrations in Marketing and General Management, and his undergrad degree from Arizona State University in Finance. Matt began his career working in Finance at Intel Corporation. After business school he joined John Deere where he worked from 2008 until 2013. In 2013, Matt and his family were delighted to move back to the place they love – Raleigh, North Carolina – so that Matt could lead the sales organization of a fourteen-store John Deere dealership. Matt’s job there was to take care of customers and their equipment throughout North Carolina.
Matt’s focus is helping others do a great job managing their money. His love of personal finance grew out of his family’s journey to repay nearly $250,000 in student loans within about three years of completing graduate school. Since then, Matt has worked to provide resources and coaching in this important area.
Matt lives in Raleigh with his wife Charity and their three amazing children, Lucy, Josh, and Ben. Matt loves spending time with his family, writing, running, hunting, and doing carpentry projects around the house. You can read more about Matt and his thoughts on money at DesignIndependence.com.
