Meet Your Team

 Meet Matt

Matt is a Family Business Advisor and Consultant whose tenacity, compassion, and integrity have all earned him a reputation as a service-centered leader. Throughout the span of 15 years, he has gained extensive financial service industry expertise. In addition to that, he has spent three decades working closely with family businesses of all kinds. During that time, he has become a trusted authority in every facet of family businesses, from tailored retirement plan design and financial planning, to cash management planning. Experiencing similar financial challenges others face daily firsthand, he decided to make improving people’s lives his life’s purpose.

However, the services Matt and his dedicated team of experts offer go beyond the monetary intricacies of running a family-run initiative. His firm understands that figuring out how to successfully operate a business while still putting your kids through school and taking care of elderly parents is no easy feat. Matt and his team strongly believe that family always comes first and they will go the extra mile-and-a-half to ensure your professional and personal life is truly fulfilling. Your Life Affects Your Business and Your Business Affects Your Life!

When he isn’t helping people step into their best versions, you can find Matt DiFrancesco playing tennis, cooking unique dishes, or serving in his parish (Youth Ministry, RCIA, Financial Counseling). He is also an avid foodie and voracious reader. Most importantly, as a dedicated family man, he cherishes spending quality time with his lovely wife Anne and their four sons.
