Since joining RSM in 1991, Matt has been passionate about the firm being preeminent in the industry and a leader in technology.

His board experience includes serving as chair of the partner matters, managing partner, and finance and M&A committees.

Prior to his role as national business tax leader, Matt led the firm’s credits, incentives and methods national practice. His public accounting experience encompasses private equity and owner-managed businesses, as well as corporations and partnerships. His industry involvement includes consumer products, software, gaming and craft brewing. He has been a featured speaker at several business association meetings and seminars, including the Institute of Management Accountants and the CFO Roundtable.

The father of three, Matt attributes much of his career success to the ongoing support of his wife and children.

He contributes to conversations on work and family as part of the firm’s Family First employee network group. Outside the firm, Matt has been involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters and Young Life, two organizations whose core values align with his own.

When he’s not strategizing on RSM technology innovations, Matt can be found in his home batting cage pitching to one of his kids or smoking meats on his wood pellet smoker.
