Kirby has nearly two decades of experience helping families navigate the complexities and opportunities of multi-generational wealth. With ten of those years spent at Matter, Kirby has a deep appreciation for the people-first mindset that Matter shows up with every day. He feels that this mindset is core to both Matter’s culture as well as foundational to the relationships that are formed with families.
Prior to joining Matter, Kirby earned a Finance Degree from the University of Missouri and MBA from Washington University in St. Louis (where he also met his wife Liz!). He got his professional start at another financial advisory firm where he spent 7 years prior to joining Matter in 2009.
As a Managing Director, Kirby is responsible for leading the collaboration and delivery of Matter services. He has deep technical expertise in portfolio construction, liquidity planning, and asset management, and enjoys applying his knowledge to multiple investment committees. Kirby is passionate about giving back and is involved in several organizations in the St. Louis Community. Today he serves on both the Finance and Investment Committee of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater St. Louis and the Finance Committee of College Bound.
Kirby enjoys spending his free time with his wife Liz, their daughter Gabriella, and son Hunter. He still plays hockey (although not too often these days!) and enjoys traveling with his family. They have also have a two-year-old German short-haired pointer, just to keep things interesting!
