UMass Video Profile Series Transcript :Matt Nagler

It's one of those places that you walk on campus and you feel the excitement. You feel the energy. For me, you felt the opportunity. My name is Matt Nagler, and I graduated from UMass in 1999. So, I had two majors at UMass, communication and Social Thought, Political Economy, which is also called STPEC. Many of the classes within STPEC were very relevant to similar course work in communication, so doing them in conjunction with each other I felt I was able to get a deeper understanding of the subject matter as well as get a more diverse experience academically. At UMass, you have to go and get it. There is endless, boundless opportunity, but you have to go and find it. And that's what the world is like. So, this is our bull-pen. We have it broken out in our three companies, the Nagler Group, KBW, and Alexander Technology Group. The folks sitting on this floor are doing both recruiting as well as business and client development, and this is where we make our placements. We have a really great organization. The people that I get to spend every day with are fantastic and the best out there. So she can do it. She can do it. Perfect. And cut. Let me just move that over there. Keep the scissors away. It has to be fun. When you deal with the challenges of business and it's really busy, you want to be surrounded by awesome talent. And we have awesome talent here. All three of our companies were just named to the Pacesetters, which is Boston Business Journal's fastest growing companies. We've been named Boston Business Journal's Best Places to Work. We also were named Business of the Year by Business New Hampshire Magazine. The Best Places to Work, honestly, is one the ones we, myself, were most proud of because it's voted on by your employees. So they have to be happy. They have to be excited to be here, and I really feel like it's earning it. So I'm really proud of UMass. I'm proud of my experience there. I'm excited that I made the choice. It was the right choice for me. I'm Matt Nagler, managing partner for BANK W. Holdings. I stand for opportunity, and I stand for UMass.
