Meet Matt Bevin for Governor


Growing up in a small, rural town, Matt was the second of six children and was raised to appreciate the importance of strong values and hard work. After high school, Matt attended Washington and Lee University in Virginia with a four-year ROTC scholarship. He also worked 20-25 hours each week in the dining hall and working security at campus events to earn extra money.

Upon graduation in 1989, Matt was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army, ultimately rising to the rank of Captain. He spent four years on active duty with primary responsibilities as the 5th Mechanized Infantry Division Artillery’s counterfire officer. After his military service, Matt worked for many years in the financial industry. In 2011, Matt became the President of Bevin Bros. In only a year, he paid off all the company’s debts and back taxes, modernized the business model, and saved more than 20 jobs.

Today, Matt and his wife, Glenna, live in Louisville with their nine children.
