Matt Nehe, Director of Finance and Administration
Vision Maker Media welcomes Matt Nehe, our new Director of Finance and Administration, to the team. Nehe was hired to take over the finance department when Mary Ann Koehler, the Business and Projects Manager, retires in August.
“I’m extremely grateful to be a part of the Vision Maker Media team," Nehe said. "To be a part of an organization that utilizes its platform to change the world through celebrating the Native culture, it’s heritage, wisdom and sacred stories is such an honor.”
Nehe is a graduate of Doane University in Lincoln, Nebraska, where he received a BS in Business Administration and Marketing. After graduating from college, he began his career as an internal wholesaler for a large national insurance company.
Nehe went on to work for the Gallup Organization where he led their political and economic research team with the primary objective of ensuring every project finished within scope. While working at Gallup, he received his MBA in corporate financial management from Upper Iowa University.
Later on, Nehe transitioned to work as a valuation analyst. In a consultative capacity, he helped companies determine the value of their organization by utilizing their financial statements and governing documents.
Prior to starting with Vision Maker Media, Nehe launched his own business and ultimately sold it after being in operation for a few years.
“I look forward to working with all of our partners at Vision Maker Media and together continuing to inspire the next generation of storytellers” Nehe said.
Mary Ann Koehler's retirement in August 2019 follow 21 years of service to Vision Maker Media and 30 years to the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Her dedication will be greatly missed.
"It's been such a valuable journey to see the growth of Vision Maker Media in my time here," Koehler said. "I believe Nehe will make a great asset to the team, and I'm excited to see where Vision Maker Media grows from here."
