Currently serving in the role of president at Sapper Insurance.

Matt is a proven leader who understands how to move targets across the finish line. His strong work ethic was developed as an engineer officer in the U.S. Army, which taught him to be a selfless servant to those he managed. He completed two deployments to Afghanistan, both of which involved the stress-free job of bomb disposal.

After his transition out of the military, Matt successfully led and grew sales departments in both the manufacturing and construction spaces. He understands the challenges of selling into the A/E/C and commercial real estate channels and has been successful at team development to penetrate these markets. Matt owns a health insurance brokerage and works with businesses to align corporate benefits programs with their employee base. To him, the most rewarding aspect of leading teams is supporting the personal growth of those around him. Matt is passionate about serving others to meet their personal and professional goals and creates unique processes by which to achieve those goals.

Matt is well-connected in the veteran community and actively assists veterans who are making the professional leap from the military to the private sector. He has a civil engineering degree from the prestigious Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and earned his MBA from the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. He is also a foodie who is always searching for hole-in-the-wall restaurants and especially enjoys riding bikes with his family to the local bakery for a tasty treat.
