Since 1996 Matt has served as Chairman of The Financial Executives Networking Group (www.TheFENG.org), an organization founded in 1991 and dedicated to providing senior level financial executives with a forum to share job opportunities and experiences.
Among the first to recognize the power of the Internet as a communication tool, Matt has grown The FENG from a Westport, Connecticut based organization with only 64 members in 1996 to a current membership of almost 37,000 spread across the entire United States, with large International chapters in London and Toronto, all connected on a daily basis through outbound email.
The FENG is the world's largest networking group of CFO's, Controllers, and Treasurers.

Members also join various “Special Interest Groups” organized by 21 industries (e.g. Manufacturing, Construction, Professional Services, etc.) and 13 financial functions (e.g. Treasury, Tax, Internal Audit, etc.). This matrix approach maximizes each member’s networking opportunities to enhance and manage their career.
