Matt Cruise

Student Director, Career Colleague Leadership Program

My name is Matt Cruise and I am a senior majoring in Economics and Finance. I hope to pursue a career in personal finance, working with people one-on-one and collaborating with them to develop their investment and retirement portfolios. In the past, I worked with The Virtus Group, a finance and insurance service company located in Providence, RI, as well as AXA Advisors; a financial services group in Wellesley, MA where I assisted with the compilation of client retirement portfolios. This past summer, I had the opportunity to work with Baystate Financial as a financial planning intern where I gained further knowledge and experience in the personal finance field.

Prior to my internships, I adorned a different type of suit and served as a Narragansett Town Beach lifeguard in Narragansett, Rhode Island. As a lifeguard and native Rhode Islander, I love spending time on the beach and exercising, but also enjoy cooking, traveling, and am an avid Boston sports fan. On campus, I served as a Career Colleague and am also a member of the Bentley Investment Group.

As a Student Director for the Career Colleague program this year, I am very passionate about working together as a team and driving towards a common goal. Come to the Career Service office and meet our Career Colleague team. We would love to work with you and help you with your career ambitions.
