Role at DLP

At DLP, Matthew manages all aspects of the finance team responsible for DLP Realty, DLP Property Management, and DLP Builders. He produces financial reports, outlining the profitability of each of those companies, as well as assets on a monthly, quarterly, annual, and ad-hoc basis. “Answers to any questions in a business can be achieved through accurate representation of the numbers, from that line of sight, that is my inspiration as an accountant,” says Matthew. He adds his favorite part about his job is the confidence he has in the leadership team, specifically the CEO and CFO, saying he thoroughly enjoys working for and with them. In order to set his tempo for each work day, Matthew likes to be the first one to walk in, turn on the lights, and work in silence for the first few hours.
