“Matt is an asset to our firm for many reasons, not the least of which is because he has taken roles of increasing responsibility, showing an independent drive for excellence,” said W. Todd Carlisle, a shareholder and Executive Committee member at Sirote & Permutt. “This honor reaffirms that he is also an asset to this community; he genuinely cares about its people and converts compassion to action.”
