Bio

Matthew is an Acadia alumnus who brings a wealth of business knowledge and experience to the Co-operative Education team and F.C. Manning School of Business. While at Acadia, he completed his thesis entitled, “An exploratory study of e-mail and performance feedback in organizations: Constructing a preliminary theoretical framework of e-feedback,” which resulted in an academic journal publication. He later obtained his management designation from the Canadian Institute of Management and the Fellow of the Credit Union Institute of Canada designation from CUIC and Dalhousie.

Before accepting a position at Acadia, he worked for Valley Credit Union for nine years in an administrative role responsible for various aspects of business including accounting, human resources, occupational health and safety, as well as client-facing activities such as selling investments and other financial products and services.

He is an entrepreneur and an educator. For the past 20 years, he has been building a successful music enterprise where he has released 12 studio albums and received various industry recognitions. In 2016, Matthew started an income tax preparation business in Hantsport, NS serving over 200 clients. His passion for education and commitment to helping others succeed led him to teaching through distance education with the Canadian Institute of Management. Since 2011, he has been teaching Introduction to Management and Managerial Communications.

Matthew also has experience serving as a director on various non-profit boards, mainly responsible for finance and policy.
