Chicago, IL USA
Matt Smith was born and raised in the Chicago area. He later earned his Bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Actuarial Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he focused on applied mathematics and statistics. However, post-graduation he returned to Chicago to work at CNA Insurance as an Actuarial Analyst. During his time at CNA he aided in data transitions and focused on data validation, process improvements, and analysis. He also has experience building models and monthly reporting tools to help gain insights for the company’s products.
After being with CNA for over two years, Matt decided that a career focused in the insurance world was not for him. He is excited to join APR and see how he can apply his skillset in a new industry. In his free time, Matt is a frequent concert-goer and foodie. On the weekends you’ll find him exploring the city of Chicago, trying the latest brunch spot, or returning to the suburbs to visit old friends and family.
