LifeTime Asset Management CEO Matt Glova has been recognized with the Triangle Business Journal’s 2018 40 Under 40 Award.
The 40 Under 40 awards recognize outstanding professionals under the age of 40 for their contributions to their organizations and to the community. Six judges from the local business community and TBJ leaders pored over about 200 nominations to come up with the final list of 40 winners in the 2018 class.
This year’s class was honored at an awards luncheon on June 28 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary. TBJ profiled the winners in a special section that was published in its June 29 subscriber edition. “These winners reflect the entrepreneurial spirit and the economic prowess of the diverse community in which we live and work,” says TBJ Publisher Jason Christie. “The Triangle is a better place because of the efforts of these honorees. I’m proud to know that the future of this area is in such good hands.”
Matt joined LifeTime Asset Management in 2010, after passing his CFP® examination in 2009 at age 27. The average age of CFP® (or Certified Financial Planner) is 49.9, according to the CFP Board. Matt was then promoted to partner in 2013 and became majority partner in 2017. As CEO, Matt has the responsibility of outlining the firm’s strategy for client service, growth, and practice management. He works closely with the firm’s founder, Guy Swain, and with all the partners in the firm, including Alan King and Lorraine Johnson. He facilitates mergers and acquisitions, and oversees the firm’s growth strategies while also prioritizing client service for LTAM’s client base. Across industries, the average CEO is 50 years old upon taking office, according to Forbes magazine. At 35, Matt is a young CEO, but he’s also a dedicated financial planner and practice manager, who’s committed to his firm and its clients.
The award also recognized Matt’s community involvement, including his work with the Boys & Girls Club of Wake County and their Great Futures campaign. Matt has also been recognized as Paul Harris Fellows by Rotary International after his work recruiting sponsors for the organization’s major charity event.
