718 was Founded and Operates on Six Core Values
Matt is a cross-functional Financial Operations and Technology Leader with a solid track record of bringing innovative process design and the latest technologies to deliver strategic digital transformation.
In 2020, Matt reignited his entrepreneurial desire and founded 718 Innovations to bring value to clients in their financial operations and digital initiatives.
Before 718, he was Chief Information Officer at Ehrenkranz Partners, an NYC-based RIA and asset manager serving ultra-high net worth clients. He established partnerships and teams of skilled internal and external parties spanning technology, finance, and operations. These teams iteratively delivered on a transformation program that continually researched, selected/designed, implemented, and adopted new business processes and software systems. This transformational leadership created the financial operations ecosystem and positioned the firm with differentiated client service and operations platforms that could readily and efficiently scale, evolve, and transcend changing technologies, market conditions, and global events.
Previously, at Picasso Software, as part of the leadership team from startup through growth stages, he established a financial services practice and led over 40+ client enablement projects. Software products were co-developed with and successfully installed, in multiple Hedge Funds. This led to the firm’s transformation from custom solutions, through consulting into high-value financial software products.
Across his global career, he has applied enthusiasm, excellent communication, and presentation skills, best practices, and influence to collaboratively define the strategic direction and subsequently inspire and manage transformation across a diverse range of corporate cultures, sizes, and locations including Wealth Management, Hedge Funds, PE Portfolio firms, global multinationals, and entrepreneurial startups.
Matt resides in the Hudson Valley New York with his wife Shannon and three children Chloe, Oliver, and Emma Claire.
