To say that Matthew Michael is involved in his community would be an understatement. Since starting his own business in 2008, Matthew has consistently been involved in the Macon and Middle Georgia community from serving on the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors to volunteering as a baseball coach for the North Macon Youth Sports Association.

After graduating in 2004 from Georgia College and State University with a BA in Mass Communication, Matthew completed a MA in Theological Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi.

Upon completing his Master’s Degree, in 2008, Matthew co-founded M&R Marketing right here in Macon. Since starting in 2008 with zero clients, Matthew and his team have grown M&R Marketing to serve over four hundred.  In addition, M&R Marketing was named as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies in 2020 by Inc. 5000, and was also named as the 2018 Small Business of the Year by the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce.

When told he’d been chosen as the Joe Magnan Alumnus of the Year, Matthew said, “Most of my memories and friendships in life originate with Tattnall, so it is an honor to have been selected for this award.”

Matthew and his wife Kim have been married for seventeen years and have three sons (Garner, 12, Riley, 10, and Harper, 8). They are active members of Northway Church, where Matthew serves as an elder, and Kim serves on staff as Preschool Director. We look forward to the commencement services, when our 2021 Joe Magnan Alumnus of the Year, Matthew Michael, addresses the Class of 2021.
