Senior Vice President
LEGENDS PROJECT DEVELOPMENT
MATTHEW provides a unique management experience and perspective to the Legends Project Development (LPD) team with over 30 years of multi-disciplinary management of non-profit, governmental, and educational programs. From early in his career as civilian employee at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to Program Manager at Columbia University working on Student Services projects and leading the renovations of laboratories for the sciences, to performing arts venues and museum institutions, he has the unique perspective of understanding the management needs for these non-profit and taxpayer funding programs.
Critical to these programs are the planning and tools from budgets that include financing costs, cash flows to balance the cash needs of bonding or pledges, to master schedules that must take in account committee and board decision making, to collateral projects required to execute the program, and finally the teams of consultants, contractors, and vendors needed to provide the proper planning/design of these specialized projects.
