Starting with MGI in 2003, Matt is proud to carry on the legacy of his Father, Duncan who founded the firm in 1980. The agency is proud of its past accomplishments and has assembled the best professional staff and sales force in the history of the organization. MGI has fully embraced the changing landscape set forth by health care reform, the dynamics of asset accumulation and wealth management, and the complexities inherent in the unbiased delivery of professional benefits consulting.
Under Matt’s watch, MGI has grown to become one of the largest locally owned full service benefits firms in the region.

McInnes Group has a history of leadership and exceptional customer service, and these values have not changed. Respect, strong relationships and mutual trust with our clients remain our highest priority. Matt has committed to our clients to offer reliable service, especially given the constant uncertainty of healthcare reform. During a time when similar companies were downsizing, selling their business, or closing their doors, he saw it as an opportunity to grow the organization.
