Matthew Liddy

Matthew P. Liddy grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and has been calling Illinois home for 20 years. As a graduate of Indiana University, he spend his early years in Chicago as a securities trader where he developed a deep understanding of global financial markets and international business.

This passion for international business led him to the next chapter of his career where for more than a decade he has been managing global wine & spirits brands as they navigate the intense US markets. Matt is currently running all US sales and marketing for a nearly 100-year old family-owned Italian winery.

One fateful family drive and lunch in Lake Forest in 2019 was enough for Matt to relocate his family here, where they plan to be lifelong residents. As a more recent Lake Forest resident, Matt would love to be of service to help preserve “the magic” of Lake Forest and what captured the heart of Matt, his wife Nikki, and daughter.

Matt would like to provide the viewpoints of newer residents while still maintaining a laser focus on what has made and kept Lake Forest desirable for decades. His close work with many restaurant groups and small businesses in Chicago, Lake County, and all of Illinois will be an asset in helping curate what it is that makes Lake Forest special for generations to come.
