Meet Matt


Matt's clients can depend on him to minimize waste, optimize efficiency, and help them use their data to arrive at meaningful decisions. His job isn't over until he's added real value for his clients and their businesses.

After three years as a controller for a local education company, five years as a CFO for a local not for profit, and eight years in other accounting and finance rolls, including time with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service in the U.S. Air Force, Matt brought all of his talents to the Accounting department of Mowery & Schoenfeld. He specializes in consulting businesses on their daily accounting, as well as overall financial planning and health.

With two little ones and a teenager, Matt and his wife manage to stay busy. When he has the time, Matt is always up for competition; playing basketball, golf, chess, and/or any other sport or game are among his preferred activities. 

In your own words, what is your job description?

My job is to put each client's business in the best possible position to succeed. In addition to providing sound technical services, I look to minimize waste, optimize efficiency, and to use data to arrive at meaningful decisions. In short, my job is to provide real value to the client.

In your own words, what’s different about Mowery & Schoenfeld?

The difference at M&S is the dedication to the mission. We have a talented team, top to bottom, that is dedicated to helping our clients succeed and grow. We live and breathe our mission, vision, and values and it makes for a great environment for collaboration, problem solving, and entrepreneurial thinking.

What is your hidden talent?

I'm an incredible hula hooper.
