Repeated M&A experience as both the acquiring and acquired companies advocating before Congress and federal regulators.

“As President and COO of Universal Music Group, I worked closely with Matt during a decade when our business faced tumultuous change. I always wanted him at the table as we discussed policy and strategy because even when issues were totally new to him he brought an invaluable common sense perspective. We were fortunate to have his experience navigating the sometime byzantine ways of government, as well as his extensive network of contacts — people from both political parties who really like and respect him personally.”
