Matthew Whitaker

Evernest CEO

Matthew is a student of the book Good To Great and is passionate about building Evernest to become the best property management company on the planet; and maybe even the universe if Elon Musk will hurry up.

To do that, he spent the first ten years of Evernest in the trenches but now focuses most of his time facilitating growth in other markets. Entrepreneurship runs in the family, his wife runs a successful business called Engaged.

You can usually find Matthew at the baseball field with his son, at a dance recital with his daughter or at his favorite restaurant with his wife, when he’s not in the office. And if you can’t find him in any of those places, it probably means he’s traveling. Hometown: Vestavia Hills, Alabama
