He has helped many universities, nonprofits and local and national businesses become more visible to students, constituents and business leaders (and he has more LinkedIn connections than most people even know).
Matt’s resume includes senior-level positions in higher education at UConn, New England College, Antioch University and the University System of New Hampshire (where he was vice chancellor of external relations). He also has special experience in high tech; Matt is the executive director of the New Hampshire High Tech Council, and in government relations, has served as press secretary for a member of Congress and legislative director at NH’s largest agency – NH Department of Health and Human Services. Matt is a founding board member of Stay Work Play New Hampshire, serves on the NH Scholars board, is an ex-officio board member of the NH High Tech Council, and is a member of the Entrepreneur’s Foundation of NH.
Education: Master’s degree in political science and Bachelor’s degree in journalism and English from the University of Connecticut. He is also a 2003 associate of Leadership New Hampshire.
Encouraging businesses large and small to launch and thrive in New Hampshire: Matt helped found the organization Stay Work Play New Hampshire, mentors entrepreneurs, offers advice to business and policy leaders, and has taught public relations courses as an adjunct faculty member at the University of New Hampshire.
Boating, tennis, skiing, and family: on the ocean or courtside watching his son play tennis, Matt enjoys spending time with loved ones, especially at his rustic camp in mid-coast Maine. It’s his favorite place to work and write (his Manchester office overlooking the iconic Red Arrow Diner with the aroma of bacon and home fries wafting through the window is a close second).
