In May 2004 Matthew was appointed the Chief Executive of the Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club (SANFL) and oversaw the SANFL Club through a period of significant challenge and change, dealing with many financial and strategic issues which would shape the future of the Club.

In 2009 Matthew joined the Port Adelaide Football Club (AFL) in a special projects role focused initially on commercial growth. This quickly saw the move to Adelaide Oval and then leading the Club’s strategy to unite Port Adelaide as One Club, bringing the Magpies in the SANFL and Power in the AFL together. This led to the official reunification of the Port Adelaide Football Club in November 2011, which was a catalyst to the club’s successful move to Adelaide Oval in 2014 and membership growth from less than 30,000 in 2010 to over 60,000 in 2015.

Matthew was appointed Executive General Manager of the Port Adelaide Football Club in 2018, and in October 2020 was appointed the Chief Executive, replacing Keith Thomas with whom he had worked closely for nine years.

At the end of 2020, the Rotary Club of Campbelltown sponsored and helped establish the Interact Club of Charles Campbell College. Interact Clubs involve members between the ages of 14 and 18 – our secondary students. At the same time, through Nikki the chair of our club’s Youth Committee, we supported Charles Campbell College to establish an EarlyAct Club for students in the primary years, up to the age of 13. The mission of EarlyAct is to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through student service - so that with the committed citizenship and effective leadership they can improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities. At a young age, students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Young people are open to recognise the dignity and worth of each individual, thereby building their respect for others. Earlyacters engage in character building activities that prepare them for leadership roles - they carry out projects which benefit others. In addition to supporting their school’s Breakfast Club, the EarlyAct Club has initiated a Backpack Project to help those experiencing homelessness. Three members of the board of the new Earlyact club - President Lily, Vice President Tahlia, and Treasurer Ruby discussed their project to the club below.
