Oppidan’s CFO named to list of top financial leaders in the Twin Cities

For the past four years, Matt Allman has successfully managed Oppidan Investment Company finances to significantly increase its financial foothold, while also allocating significant resources to transform the communities in which Oppidan builds. Matt effectively strikes a delicate balance of growing the company with being the strong steward of the company resources, which is why it’s no surprise he is one of the 2021 Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal CFOs of the Year honorees.

Under Matt’s financial leadership, Oppidan has developed more than 500 projects valued at more than $4 billion and spanning 25 million-square feet throughout 39 states and parts of Canada. Oppidan develops in various project sectors with a focus on senior housing, multi family, industrial, critical infrastructure and retail. Strong partnerships are one of the pillars of Oppidan’s success, and the team has an impressive client list that includes Duluth Trading Company, Ebenezer, Northern Tool, Cub Foods, Hornbachers, Target, Sprouts, GE Oil & Gas, Goodwill, Caliber Collision and more.

During Matt’s tenure as CFO, Oppidan has experienced strong financial growth and success.  The value of the development portfolio as increased more than 155 percent, which has led to strong results in both annual development dollars and revenues.

Matt’s leadership extends beyond financial numbers. Matt is a voice of reason in a real estate industry that moves fast and takes calculated development risks. He’s an integral member of the Senior Leadership team, contributing to Oppidan’s long-range planning, and also oversees a high-performing team of five financial professionals. Matt’s leadership in the company and within his department is one of the reasons Oppidan was named two years in a row to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s Best Places to Work list.

Matt firmly believes in Oppidan’s core values that push its employees to succeed in the face of adversity and guide them in creating innovative processes and strong philanthropic initiatives. Under Matt’s leadership, Oppidan created the Pillar’s Fund, which is used for memory care programming to enrich the lives of the memory care residents who reside in Oppidan-built senior living communities.
