Q&A with Matt Fetty, Sales Manager
What do you do at Network for Good?
I am a Sales Manager at Network for Good managing eight Fundraising Sales Consultants. On a daily basis, you can find me holding coaching sessions with my team and facilitating meetings with other departments. As a Sales Manager, I’m continuously working to foster a healthy relationship between the Sales Team and the rest of the departments so we can continue to level the fundraising playing field for small nonprofits.
What is your experience with nonprofit organizations outside of Network for Good?
I serve on the board for the Clemson Rugby Foundation where I participate in monthly board meetings with our other founding members. I’m tasked with engaging our younger alumni members and encouraging donors to contribute to the foundation after graduation. It’s been a rewarding experience to learn first hand what it is like to manage an all-volunteer nonprofit!
What attracts you to nonprofits?
During my days at Clemson University, I was a member of Habitat for Humanity and engaged in a number of other volunteering opportunities. When I graduated from Clemson, I immediately became involved in the Clemson Rugby Foundation and soon realized how hard running a small nonprofit can be.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I love my interactions with my direct team and everyone else across Network for Good. It’s a treat to come into work every day to work with others who are so keen on growing themselves and also helping our clientele succeed at the same time.
What do you enjoy doing outside work?
In my spare time, I still play a little bit of rugby although I usually leave with a few more bumps & bruises than I used to! I have a rooftop, so I love grilling during the summer and am a brunch enthusiast. During the Fall, you can probably find me Thursday – Monday night watching football and rooting the Clemson Tigers & Baltimore Ravens on to victory!
Dream vacation? I would love to visit Australia and New Zealand.
