Education: Mathematics and Secondary Education, Appalachian State University 1999
Matt’s first career path after graduating from Appalachian State University in 1999 was in education where he was a high school math teacher and soccer coach for two years. In 2001 he made a career change and until 2012, he worked exclusively in the 403(b) market in many school districts throughout North Carolina. His desire to offer his clients a more comprehensive financial plan led him to F.R. Owen & Associates in January 2013.
Matt entered the financial services industry with the mindset that if he can work with clients and grow with them, there is a mutual long term benefit for both parties. His persistency and attention to detail help his clients have confidence that they are in good hands when it comes to their financial matters.
He believes that middle America is drastically overlooked and underserved by the financial services industry. That belief led him to working with school teachers for more than a decade, and now fuels his ongoing desire to work with that segment of America that desperately needs trustworthy and reliable guidance from financial professionals.
Matt and his wife were married in 2005 and currently reside in Gastonia, NC. He enjoys running, spending time with their pets, and attending Appalachian State football games.
