The Rush Companies

In Matt Smith's words

The success of this organization is derived by the tenacity of our team. Every day I see a new level of dedication by our office and field teams.

Matt first joined The Rush Companies in 1992 as a field technician, making him a true testament to the culture of hard work and opportunity in which we pride ourselves. As President, Matt's primary focus is overseeing and managing all current and future real estate developments. Secondarily, he loves to get his hands into many other areas of the business including property acquisition, financing, marketing, leasing and more.
After graduating from Washington State University with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 1997, Matt was a pilot with Alaska Airlines for seven years. During that time he also had his own real estate development and investment business. He re-joined Rush again in 2007, bringing his comprehensive experience to this leadership role.

BA in Business Administration, Washington State University

As President, Matt is responsible for providing strategic leadership to the Rush Companies by establishing long-range goals, plans, and policies. He works closely with the Vice Presidents of our six vertical companies to ensure fiscal sustainability and company culture.
