Matthew Tevis, 30-year banking veteran, named to lead Chatham’s Financial Institutions business
At the beginning of April, Chatham Financial named Matthew Tevis the Managing Partner and Global Head of Financial Institutions.
Matt joined Chatham in 2016 and has over 30 years of experience working for and with financial institutions — learning the industry from the inside out. Beginning as a corporate banker at a regional bank, Matt has served clients throughout his career, transitioning into capital markets and then becoming a hedging advisor. Matt has helped many financial institutions manage their rate risks, expand their product offerings, and grow their businesses. He succeeds Andrew Little, who soon will be retiring after a five-year tenure leading the financial institutions team.
“We’re fortunate that our next Financial Institutions leader was already an integral part of the team. Matt has been a tremendous asset to our organization and is a leader of the highest caliber and character,” said Clark Maxwell, Chatham’s CEO. “I know Matt will continue to bring integrity, transparency, and accountability to every interaction he has with clients, partners, and teammates.”
As Matt assumes his new role, he will continue to help bring derivative solutions to Main Street and impact the capital markets and local communities that Chatham serves. Matt’s leadership continues the team’s focus on expanding their hedging advisory business with regional and community banks and credit unions, deepening existing client relationships with valuable insights and best-in-class support, and leveraging Chatham’s proven technology platform to provide innovative solutions and an unparalleled client experience.
“I am humbled and excited to lead such a talented financial institutions team that will continue to provide our clients with the deep resources and end-to-end support of our global risk management platform,” said Tevis.
