Matthew A. Kuykendall

Managing Director of Operations & Technology

Matt joined Matter in 2010 to help streamline our back-office administration and portfolio accounting systems. Prior to his time at Matter, he spent six years in financial analysis and accounting roles at Enterprise Holdings, which gave him sharp accounting skills and a grasp of the investment process.

A graduate of the University of Missouri at St. Louis, Matt received a BSBA with a concentration in finance. He is famous for “laser-guided accuracy” when it comes to data and can tackle any reporting challenge under the sun, from portfolio performance to data aggregation to consolidated reporting. Matt’s ability to conceptualize and address reporting issues helps our teams reconcile disparate data and provide clear, accurate reports for Matter families. He also manages the relationships with our technology vendors.

When he’s not deep in data, Matt’s likely on the field spectating or playing any number of sports with his active kids. In his downtime, he enjoys lazy weekends at the lake—fishing, swimming, and relaxing with family—and he is determined to perfect the art of smoking various cuts of meat.
