MEET MATT LEBRETTON

 
 

LEBRETTON'S STORY

Matt and his wife, Michelle, moved to Hingham in 2009, realizing a dream that began years earlier when they began searching for their first home.  Hingham, its great schools, neighborhoods, neighbors and natural resources was and remains an incredible community -- one we are fortunate to call home.

Matt’s mother, Melody, instilled in him the importance of education at a young age.  Melody, as a 19-year-old single mother, was the first person in her large family (she was one of 10 children) to attend college; Matt was second.  With his mother working seven days a week in multiple jobs, Matt, an only child, saw school as a warm, inviting, safe place.  

The influence of teachers in Matt’s life led him to pursue a degree at Salem State College in History with a minor in Education – his goal to be a high school History teacher.  Through twists and turns in his career Matt instead worked extensively in and around government.  Eventually Matt, while working full time, graduated with honors from Suffolk University Law School.  Today, Matt owns and operates his own consulting firm in Boston, Charles Street Strategies, where he helps an array of clients navigate complex questions and gain consensus from key decision makers.

The drive to teach still burns for Matt and he has channeled that energy into coaching and coordinating with various sports programs in Hingham.  As someone who grew up on the razor’s edge of poverty, Matt believes deeply in giving back.

Matt and Michelle live on Volunteer Road with their three children Samantha (Hingham High School), Abigail (Hingham Middle School) and Jake (South Elementary School) and Matt’s bestie, Stella the Wonderdog.
