Matt is an actuary at Security Benefit Life, where he manages the Long Term Planning and Enterprise Risk Management modeling team. Matt serves on Security Benefit’s Charitable Trust Board, the Washburn University Actuarial Advisory Board and was a graduate of the Leadership Greater Topeka class of 2015.
In Matt’s spare time he enjoys watching Washburn and Kansas State football, serves on the YMCA Board of Directors, volunteers at the YMCA’s Camp Hammond and is on the United Way’s Finance Committee, the Young Leader Steering Committee, and is the chair of the Born Learning Trail.
Matt’s passion is helping youth in the community. He was a key driver in the building of the Born Learning Trail behind Pine Ridge Prep, a multi-year project that allows children to learn with their parents and caregivers along the trail. The Born Learning Trail is a safe place for children to play, offering shaded equipment, a basketball court, splash pad, a large gazebo for reading and a “yellow brick road.” Matt is currently managing the building of a second Born Learning Trail behind Avondale East NET Reach Center
“Matt’s dedication to the Topeka community makes him a model associate at Security Benefit and he has personally contributed greatly to the expansion and promotion of volunteering at the company.” —Roger Offermann, Security Benefit
