“What will this do for the community?” This thought started Matthew’s first deal 23 years ago and—more than 85 successful deals later—is at the core of every Vecino project. With a passion for urban renewal, he looks past ‘what is’ to see ‘what could be’ and views each community challenge as an opportunity for positive change. As CEO of Vecino, Matthew spends his time structuring the framework, assembling the right team and helping to navigate the challenges of each deal. Matt is and has been a proud board member of multiple non- profits and is a member in good standing of YPO.
