Leadership Gainesville, now in its 43rd year, is a ten-month community leadership program designed to identify and develop leadership skills through a combination of in-depth issue seminars and regional issues exposure program. For the first time, the Chamber has appointed a class mentor—CPPI Executive Vice President Matthew “Matt” Webster, GGP, LEED AP BD+C—to guide and represent the program through the 2016-2017 class year. Matt is a 1995 graduate of the University Of Florida M.E. Rinker School Of Construction Management.  He was in Army ROTC and was commissioned a 2LT prior to graduation.  After four years as a combat engineer and two tours overseas, he decided to separate from the Army. 

Matt returned to Gainesville and started working for Charles Perry Construction in 1999.  In 2011, Charles Perry Construction merged with PPI Construction Management to become Charles Perry Partners, Inc.  From 1999 to present, Matt has continued to work for Charles Perry Partners Inc. and is now Executive Vice President.
