Matt has a full 30 years of experience as a financial services professional, with areas of expertise in investment management and insurance planning. He finds great satisfaction in helping his clients pursue the many financial milestones throughout life. In fact, some of his clients have been with him from the beginning, and now their children and even grandchildren have also become clients.

Before joining Raymond James in 2000, he served as a financial advisor at Prudential Securities and First of Michigan, and also earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Central Michigan University.

He has been active in the Battle Creek community for many years, having served as past board chair of the Binder Park Zoo, on the boards of the Battle Creek Family YMCA Center and the Battle Creek Bible Church and as past board chair of the Battle Creek Country Club.

Originally from Muskegon, Michigan, Matt lives in Battle Creek with his wife, Emily. They have three grown sons, Jake, Jim and Dan. In his free time, Matt enjoys playing golf, skiing, reading and, most importantly, being a grandpa.
