Matt Corning


Matt Corning is the CEO at The Corning Group. Matt brings a diverse professional background and experience in management, operations, sales and marketing.

In 2013, Matt took a leap of faith and founded The Corning Group. His direct and transparent approach to recruiting coupled with a wicked sense of humor was received like a breath of fresh air rising to the surface in an ocean of awful recruiters within the AEC Industry. 

Matt credits his success in business and career development services from his passion for creating real connections with people and the fulfillment in helping others. He is down-to-earth and respects the relationships he forges, both personally and professionally. A major driver for him are the opportunities to positively impact other people’s lives through career enhancement. 

From Boston to California Matt currently resides on the Central Coast of California. He and his wife Jennifer have been busy raising a blended family of 5 children. Their life together is focused on faith, family and being as intentional as possible with their time. Some of Matt’s passions are cooking, playing music, DIY projects, turning wrenches and seeking epic adventures.
