Matt Baer

project manager

Matt is passionate about helping mission-driven organizations better tell their stories and achieve their goals. As a project manager, he brings this sense of purpose to his work and clients through thoughtful execution and oversight of Metropolitan Group’s work. 

Born and raised in Virginia, Matt graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Environmental Sciences and Urban Planning. After college, he worked for, and volunteered with, nonprofits and community based organizations up and down the East Coast, focusing on local farming, urban planning, and young-adult education. Matt moved to Portland in 2016 and joined Metropolitan Group in 2019, where these experiences now inform his work and relationships with clients by giving him insight into their needs and stakeholders.

Outside of work, Matt spends his time hiking and exploring the Pacific Northwest with his wife and their dog, cooking and enjoying local produce, and competing in triathlons.
