Chief Executive Officer
Basking Ridge, NJ
Matt joined Bonnie Brae’s Board of Trustees in December of 2018. A long-time resident of Somerset County, Matt became connected to Bonnie Brae through his wife, Tracy, who came for a tour and was inspired by Bonnie Brae’s mission. Both Matt and Tracy have a passionate, faith-driven commitment to helping and serving others. Together they oversee their family foundation, The Footprints Foundation, which is dedicated to “supporting self-sufficiency through the hard times in life and carrying individuals through temporary financial difficulties.”
Professionally, Matt spent more than 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry with companies such as Galderma, Berlex and Intendis before going into business for himself as the Founder of Mirada Pharmaceuticals, which is currently in the early stages of product development. A native of New Jersey, Matt grew up in West Virginia, attended Marshall University and spent several years in Florida before settling down in Basking Ridge in the late 1990s.
Matt, Tracy and their daughter Lucia love to travel and are self-described “foodies.” They enjoy spending time at their home in Florida, dining out, cooking and being with their beloved animals which includes 4 dogs and 7 birds. Their greatest joy comes from the charitable work that they do and Matt is looking forward to being able to make a difference in some small way for the Bonnie Brae boys.
