Matt is a recognized leader in ESG with over 20 years of experience from an investor, public company and academic perspective. His experience includes serving as Managing Director of ESG at Teneo Consulting, Vice President & Director of Corporate Governance at MFS Investment Management and Associate Director of the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance.

In his current role at Teneo, Matt guides public companies on ESG investing trends and the impact that ESG ratings, rankings, indexes and disclosure frameworks are having on their shareholders. He also advises companies on issues relating to ESG disclosure, engagement, activism defense, boards of directors, and proxy contests.

During his 13-year tenure at MFS Investment Management, Matt built and managed the firm’s first global ESG stewardship and active ownership program for approximately $500 billion in assets under management. Matt also managed the firm’s commitment to the Principles for Responsible Investment and was a founding member of the firm’s Responsible Investing Committee and ESG Working Group.

During his semester at the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance, Matt managed the Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Forum – a thought leadership blog focused on ESG issues – and directed the Program’s events and sponsorship activities. He was also an active contributor to the Harvard Law School corporate governance curriculum.

Matt has been a guest lecturer at Harvard Law School and Boston University School of Law. He was a founding member of the US Investor Stewardship Group and served on its Governance and Marketing Committees. He also served on the Advisory Council at the Harvard Law School Program for Institutional Investors.

Matt contributed the corporate governance chapters of two publications: “The Fund Industry: How Your Money is Managed” (Robert C. Pozen and Theresa Hamacher, 2014), which is considered the main textbook on the mutual fund industry; and “Too Big To Save? How To Fix the US Financial System” (Robert C. Pozen, 2009).

Matt earned a B.A. from Tufts University and an M.B.A. from Boston University.
