Sustain Blaine elects board member

Matt McNeal to replace Evan Lawler

Local financial manager Matt McNeal has been appointed to the Sustain Blaine economic development group’s board of directors.

McNeal is a director of American Capital Advisory, a financial service firm that helps manage the assets of businesses and individuals from two locations—one in Ketchum and one in Virginia Beach, Va.

McNeal replaces former board member Evan Lawler, who left the board in October to seek business opportunities in Seattle.

McNeal has also worked for Kearns, McGinnis and Vandenberg, a Ketchum-based building firm, as a project manager. He said in a press release that he has served as an analyst and portfolio manager for other investment firms and has helped local businesses and organizations find creative ways to manage investments.

McNeal has coached the alpine team for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation and is an avid mountain biker.

“I am really excited to join the board,” he said in a written statement. “I really look forward to connecting and motivating our area’s extensive professional and intellectual networks to help build our local economy into a sustainable and competitive force.”

McNeal will join a 13-member board composed of seven private-sector representatives and six representatives from local government.
