Matthew Reese (MBA ’07)

“My time at the Wisconsin School of Business gave me an opportunity to forge lifelong friendships, develop deep professional connections, and gain the skills and confidence necessary as a second-generation business owner to continue running my father’s real estate appraisal firm. Learning from the world’s sharpest business and real estate professionals was such an incredible experience. I am forever indebted and will continue to support the program and assist future business leaders of color in their professional development.”
