I wonder why the Chamber fired J Matt Carlson after only 6 months. There is the rumor that he was running off all his staff and that he was difficult to work with behind the scenes. Personally I only worked with Matt on a few community projects, but he was pretty bad about telling me he'd do something and then never following up. I remember one time where I tried to call him about a project he intitiate and he stalled, once I heard him tell the secretary to lose me. It is never a good thing when you get fired after 6 months after your last job lasted only 8 months. I wonder what he did before then. It'll be interesting to see if J Matt Carlson will stay in Lincoln as he promises or if the skeltons start rolling out of the closet and he flys the coop.

Don, just an aside to your post; Matt's last position did not last 8 months. After leaving the Clayton Chanber, he took a job as the Executive Director for the Georgia Firefighter's Burn Foundation in Atlanta. He began working with them in at the end of July 2005, and left them in September of that same year (it was about 6-7 weeks). During that time he went out of town for a "family land deal", that turned out to be an interview in Nebraska. He left that foundation high and dry by telling them that his father had a stroke, and he had to leave to go and tend to the family estate and business.

Mr. Carlson did leave Lincoln with somewhat of a wake behind him. I am personally and professionally aware of Matt taking payments on mold remediation projects but not paying his subcontractors before leaving Lincoln. In this day and age, it amazes me that individuals like this are allowed to operate without being detected. You folks in Georgia were right.

I happen to know this person. He is absolutely useless. Look up the word, "Narcissistic" and you should find his name.

There have been other firings and wives (yes, more than one) and children left behind prior to arriving in Lincoln, NE. Very strange and unreliable individual, in my opinion. His relationships, both personal and professional, seem to not last too long and do not seem to matter to him. I've seen it for years.

I know this for F-A-C-T because I'm the one that he used, charged his client for my services, and then never paid my invoices. My company has an A+ rating with the BBB. I've been in the restoration/remediation industry for twenty-five+ years. I am a man of my word.

Matt flat out defrauded my company. I expected a lot more from a person of his ostensible integrity.

He went to Emory University - got an MBA in 1990. Then went to ScottMadden Consulting. Then was "released" from a healthcare consulting firm. Then to First Community Development - a fundraising firm. Then to a turbulent stint at Douglas County (GA) Chamber. Then to Clayton County (GA) Chamber, changing wives and leaving children along the way ... on and on ... my experience is that he can act friendly, but can be unreliable, difficult and deceiving, and seems to have a tendency to put his own spin on the "truth". My experiences have not been positive and I have personally been subject to his untruths and deception. I feel for (and have watched) those who have had to "pick up the pieces" of his deceptive exploits. Some were hard to believe, as he comes across as a stand up guy ... at first.

I, too knew him, or thought I did. He deceived me for 9 years. Last contact was in November 2009. If anybody knows how to find him, let me know. He and his wife destroyed my 10 year career and it has taken me 5 years to recover professionally. I would surmise the latest wife is now gone too and there is yet another child left behind.

My husband and I too became victims of this man. Unfortunately I googled his name way to late. We tried to sell a business to this man and due to misplaced trust and stupidity got stuck with a years worth of unpaid P/R taxes, lease payments, legal bills and unpaid vendors amounting to over $50,000! Last we knew his current wife Kimberly was in Fountain Colorado while he works a job for the city of Parker in Colorado. How long before Parker learns of his past? People should write letters to the City! Hopefully Colorado Springs has seen the last of this man!
