As President of Gifford Carr, Matthew is a key part of the management team, responsible for the overall day-to-day operations of the firm. In a business where trust is imperative, he can always be counted on to ensure the needs of clients are well-served. A natural communicator, Matthew has the gift of being a strong relationship builder – with clients, partners, and staff alike.
Born and raised with the insurance industry in his family, he has made a significant impact on the business in a remarkably short period of time, demonstrating exceptional leadership and management skills. Since being appointed President, Matt has facilitated Gifford Carr’s expansion into two new markets, Burlington, and North Bay, and he has overseen growth of the company’s executive leadership and regional teams.
Without question, Matthew is heavily immersed in the business, but he also manages to find time to relax and blow off steam – usually with a game of golf or hockey. Matthew is also a member of the Montfort Hospital Members Association, Boating Ontario, the Ottawa Construction Association, and he is affiliated with numerous other initiatives as a committee member.
