Today, MZ represents approximately 30 public and private companies covering multiple industries.

His skill set is centered around key corporate messaging, shareholder communications, investor introductions/meetings and complicated problem-solving.
He earned "a summa cum laude designation" from the University of South Carolina where he enjoyed and embraced southern hospitality, but never forgets his childhood roots and ability to catch and pick Blue Crabs in Annapolis, Maryland. Matt views every day as an opportunity to learn something new and constantly improve his investment acumen. He is a connector, opportunist and problem solver. His immediate family includes wife Julie, daughter Gianna, and son Christian and extended family includes parents and four sisters who blessed him with nine nieces and nephews. The Hayden’s enjoy traveling, the beach, surfing, snowboarding and just about anything outdoors. The family contributes a portion of their income several non-profit and charitable organizations while picking one each year to get deeply involved with. For more information click here.
