My name is Matt Newman, my
family and I moved to Johns Creek in August of 201. My oldest two
children both attend AMMS, Brenden is in 7th, Rachel in 6th. A little
about me. I’m passionate about being a collaborator and finding a positive
result and benefit to the most difficult situations. Just like in
corporate America where I have been working the past 25 years, the educational
system is no different, you have to maximize the resources given and provide
the best experience for your end customer, in this case at AMMS it’s our
students. As a profession, I’m responsible for Customer Experience
inside the Healthcare Industry. I see the customer experience in business
in a similar fashion to parent/student experience. What our students take
away with them from their brief three-year experience at AMMS can influence and
shape them in so many different ways. Providing the best tools and
environment that can be delivered to positively shape those experiences is my
charter for this nomination to the council. Whether you are leading,
governing, influencing, etc. whoever your fighting for always benefit by you
prioritizing choices based on maximizing the returns they will reap from by
those decisions. Collaborating with AMMS leadership, teachers, parents,
and the community supporting the school is foundational. Doing this while
continuing to drive the reputation, results, and student experience delivered
at AMMS today is why I’m interested in this role.
I am the father of two
daughters in the district (7th and 4th grades currently). I worked in the
financial market for 20 years as a consultant and banker (BNY Mellon) both in
New York and in São Paulo, Brazil. I am currently part of a start-up
technology company based in Alpharetta (Worthix). In addition to my
professional experience, I served on the Board of Directors of a biofuel
producer in Brazil for 4 years, providing managerial and strategic direction
for a growing company in a challenging market. I am interested in
serving on Autrey Mill's School Governance Council primarily because I am a
strong believer in the role of public schools for the development of our
children and the contribution they can make to our communities. I was raised
in a family in which both of my parents were public school educators, and my
brother pursued a career as a public school teacher in Vermont. I moved
to the Alpharetta/John's Creek area 1 1/2 years ago because of the outstanding
public school environment and the strong economic consolidation of the
region. I would enjoy an opportunity to offer my time and effort to
support the school my daughters attend (present and future) and contribute to
its ongoing success and interaction with other parents and the community as a
