Matt is the CEO of Perry Ventures, LLC. He founded and developed Buffalo Square Shopping Center, located in Mill Creek next to Archbishop Thomas Murphy High School. Matt architected the business plan and developed this commercial entity in 2002, which was a heavily matrixed permit process to construct the multi-tenant shopping center. He is the owner/operator of the Buffalo Chevron Station and Car Wash, which is a 4,000 square foot part of the initial commercial entity of the shopping center. Matt also negotiated national tenants such as KinderCare and Grease Monkey. He thereafter negotiated long-term lease opportunities with Mieko's Fitness, Buffalo Square Dental, Dance Elite, Miyako's Teriyaki, and Buffalo Square Taekwondo.
Matt was able to achieve a zero vacancy during the difficult economy, which highly affected the retail sector. He lowered rates to attract proven tentants by completing and providing extensive business forecasting and market analysis to commensurate with local demographics and commercial needs.
