Meet Meet Matt

Matt founded his company in 2006 and has seen nothing but growth since the very beginning. His idea for Bourbon Barrel Foods began in the early 2000s when Jamie was in his early 30s when he had an idea "to do something interesting."

Bourbon Barrel Foods has evolved into a lifestyle brand that exemplifies the culture and easy living of Kentucky’s Bourbon Country. Growth seemed easy and came naturally. Almost too easy and, at times, seemingly outpacing Jamie’s personal development. “Our growth trajectory has not been a steep climb over a few years. Rather, it was a slow and steady progression over the last 17 years. Bourbon Barrel Foods is strong, always growing,” Jamie says. 

Today he leads about 40 employees who depend on him to make decisions, solve problems and grow the company. “My job every day is to lead my team at Bourbon Barrel Foods and make it a place where they, too, can grow and flourish.
