Matt Lemke

2013 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient


Matt began his career as a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones where he was given training of the highest standard. As Matt’s business grew so did the needs of his clients. Growth, accompanied with the changing needs and demands of clients prompted Matt to explore other alternatives within the financial services industry. This ultimately led to Matt forming Summit Wealth Strategies in 2006 and affiliating with Raymond James Financial Services in order to be able to truly advise his clients on an unbiased, independent platform. Matt and his wife Claire are life-long residents of Crystal Lake and are happily raising their three children in the same community where they grew up. Matt currently serves as Vice President for the Friends of MCC Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Matt received his Associates of Science from McHenry County College and Bachelor’s degree from Columbia University.
