Matthew Autterson is a rare breed. In addition to decades-long experience, he has a unique combination of skills that include leadership, marketing, and financial analysis. These skills and experience have allowed him to work in a number of financial institutions over the years. Today, however, he sits on the board of a pharmaceutical company, Falci Adaptive Biosystems – a role many in the financial world would not have the courage to attempt. Autterson has thrived with Falci Adaptive Biosystems set to launch a neuropathic painkilling drug in the near future as they currently have one in the clinical-stage.
Autterson’s first employment position was at the First Trust Corporation. The company was a subsidiary of financial sector giant, Fiserv. He left after only two years to join the new-to-be Colorado branch of the New York based company, Integrated Resources. He helped the Colorado branch become a state chartered trust company in Colorado before moving on to join Resources Trust Company. He served as the company’s president. He, however, decided to take a break and spend time with his family when the company was acquired by SunAmerica Inc. SunAmerica Inc. would later be in turn acquired by AIG for a reported fee of $18 billion. He would later join the noble project at Falci Adaptive Biosystems as a board member.
Matthew Autterson currently lives in Denver. He has stayed true to the city over the years having worked in it for decades. He also completed a Graduate Tax at the University of Denver. Consequently, today he is widely acclaimed to be a leader in the greater Denver community. Autterson has, in turn, repaid the community’s faith by widely engaging in philanthropy. He has for many years supported Denver Hospice, at one time even serving as the chairman of its Board of Directors. He has also consistently worked with the Denver Zoological Foundation. In fact, he has previously held a seat on the board of the Denver Zoo. His philanthropic support to these organizations has not only been in an authoritative capacity, but also in a financial one. For example, he brought convinced a number of known brands in Colorado, including Mellon and Dreyfus, to act as sponsors to the Denver Zoo.
While many in the financial sector may be described as boring, Matthew Autterson is anything but it. He likes to have fun in free time. He once took part in and completed the Baja 1000 – a road race through rough Mexican country. Many have described the race as being ‘wild.’
