Matt Neumann, CEO of Pewaukee-based Neumann Companies, graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran College with a Bachelor of Science degree in business economics in 2004, then received an MBA in marketing and finance from Marquette University in 2006.
Since then, he has been an active part of the communities his companies serve. In 2015, Neumann Companies donated two homesites and built one home in Jackson for Operation Finally Home – a program where local builders construct mortgage-free homes for wounded war heroes and their families.
When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in 2017, Neumann’s team helped the flood victims by filling a semitrailer with supplies bound for Houston.
Neumann and his companies have honored nearly 300 veterans with Stars & Stripes Honor Flights to Washington, D.C. Neumann Companies also participates in Kids Building Wisconsin – a non-profit organization that focuses on encouraging and inspiring kids and their families to consider a career in the construction industry.
He has partnered with various high schools over the years giving students the opportunity to assist with home builds and learn the trades. Neumann also supports the Wisconsin Chapter of Special Spaces.
