NORTH CAROLINA STATE DIRECTOR
Matthew’s personal mission is to serve leaders and organizations in all sectors of society through clarifying identity, hosting vision, and inspiring global synergy. He has over 25 years of experience in sales, marketing, business development and relationship management in industries ranging from communications to financial services to performance improvement. Along the way, Matthew was led into an awakening of the “REST of the story.” An uncommon process taught him to wait and listen for wisdom. He discovered that a key to our successful tomorrow is not found in just improving “performance” but rather staying “present” today. Matthew operates with a compelling desire to discover the deeper truths of life and innovate relationally toward mutually beneficial cooperation. He sees unlimited opportunity to invest in people, organizations, projects and communities which has led him to search for the abundance that can allow the best solutions to come forth. Matthew and his wife Lindsay are based in Charlotte, NC along with their daughter Aidan and extended family.

As a natural-born leader and accomplished collaborator, she serves to provide clarity, motivation and coordination in every engagement she experiences, personally and professionally.

The training and education Lindsay has gleaned over her life has taken her from a budding writer to a seasoned expressionist of identity, value and purpose for an array of leaders and entities speckled throughout the many spheres of society. The insights she stewards are the ammunition for prayer that is the catalyst for the results her co-laborers experience. She currently resides with her husband Matthew and growing family in Charlotte, NC.
