A graduate of Chico State University in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree, Matt was first introduced to the insurance industry in 1998 while working in Arizona.
He began selling Mortgage Protection for a large Sacramento based IMO, and realized immediate success under the remote tutelage of Mike Passaglia. Matt continued to work with Mike Passaglia upon his move back to the Sacramento, CA area, and was given management of the largest territory for that company at that time; that being Northern California.
Matt continued to excel in his role with Mortgage Protection, but began to be intrigued with Final Expense insurance in 2007. Matt explored, studied and wrote Final Expense policies over the next two years and realized tremendous success. In 2009, he created a new start-up division for a large IMO and built the Final Expense division from the ground up. He quickly built the division to more than $3,000,000 a year in placed Final Expense business.
Matt is primarily responsible for all Final Expense sales efforts of Legacy Life and works with agents and managers nationwide. Matt spends a great deal of time in the field working with agents, and also maintains his status as a top personal producer… a distinction he has held for more than a decade.
