Matt Willson
President and Founder

Whom some might call a restless soul, Matt has a 25-year career spanning computer software, private equity, strategic business consulting, and investment management. Most recently, before founding Grin Press, Matt worked as a retail financial advisor for a major national investment firm. There, he determined there had to be a better way for people to manage their investments without feeding the greedy Wall Street monster.  Thus, Grin Press was born.

Writing and publishing have been lifelong interests for Matt. He wrote 3 complete novels in his teens and early twenties before discovering an interest in financial and business writing. 

Matt holds a BA degree with honors from Williams College in Massachusetts. He also earned an MBA with honors from the University of Texas. He previously held an insurance license in the state of Texas as well as Series 7, 66, and 31 securities licenses.

Matt has served a variety of nonprofit organizations with his time and financial support, including Austin Children’s Shelter, American YouthWorks, Salvage Vanguard Theater, Austin Humane Society, The Nature Conservancy, Clean Water Action, AIDS Services of Austin, and his church. Matt lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and two children.
