Before establishing Endsight Consulting, Matt spent 20 years in senior positions in the US Government in Washington. He had the privilege of serving three tours at the White House/National Security Council in both the Clinton and Bush (43) administrations, including as Director of African Affairs. He moved to the Legislative Branch where he was a professional staff member in the US Congress, House International Relations Committee, overseeing US foreign aid. Matt completed his public service as the Chief of Staff and Vice President at the Millennium Challenge Corporation.
Moving to the private sector, Matt was named Director of International Development and Reconstruction for a large government contractor. While there, he launched a joint venture company that won an award under a $10 billion USG contract. Even more important, he learned the business of government contracting and the importance of P&L.
In 2011, Matt decided to bet on himself and founded Endsight Consulting. He seeks to leverage his experience to guide companies and governments alike to solve complex problems and achieve big successes based on performance.
Matt is a graduate of Brigham Young University’s School of Engineering and Technology (Bachelors) and George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Relations (Masters).
Matt is happily married with five children. His wife tolerates him, and he tries to score points with his kids by taking them on really cool vacations; they all play along, but actually know better. In his late-50s, his bones are starting to creak, but nothing broken yet despite the delusion that he can still ski and play ball. Matt thinks a lot about exercise and likes reading, foreign travel, and Sunday afternoon naps.
