With the Leadership Development Progam’s First Year Initiative (FYI) just a week away, we wanted to take a moment and recognize our first year associate Matt Boat. Matt has been of tremendous help in the production end of the shop for the last few months.
Matt comes to us from Indiana University where he graduated with a degree in English. Unlike most LDP associates, Matt has a limited background in print with experience working for a newspaper in Martinsville.
When Matt isn’t off-bearing the folder or stitcher, he’s likely to be found listening to music or jamming out on his guitar. His favorite genre is Blues, and his band – Fistful of Bacon – can be found filling the Player’s Pub with soulful tunes. If he’s not strumming his guitar, he fills his time with books and writing. (He’s an English major, give him a break!)
Much like everyone else we spotlight, Matt sites the people as his favorite part of Metro so far. “They’ve been so nice and funny. Not too mention how accommodating and helpful they’ve been,” he said. A sentiment that we hope all of those who come in contact with Metropolitan feel.
Best of luck at your first CGX event, Matt!
