Our friend and colleague Matt Stinner passed away suddenly last week. Matt was a Managing Director and a leader in our New York office since 2019.

We are all deeply saddened, and our hearts go out to his family and loved ones. We all knew Matt as a man full of life with many passions, and above all a committed and devoted father.

Our firm benefited immensely from Matt’s outstanding leadership and deep commitment to supporting and developing talent during his too-short time at Semler Brossy. Matt was a natural at catching people in the act of “being great”—and he constantly found ways to support team members and equip us for success. He was selfless with his time, asked for no recognition, and took great pride in others’ successes.

Professionally, Matt was a compensation consultant for over 20 years, with deep expertise in technology and life sciences industries. He made a meaningful impact with his clients and across our industry through his work at Semler Brossy and in leadership positions at other national firms.

Matt’s enthusiasm, integrity, humility, insight, leadership, and wisdom will be deeply missed.
