Matthew M. Ebzery
Vice President, Sheridan County Term 2012-2016
I was born and raised in Sheridan, Wyoming where I graduated from Sheridan High School in 2000, and went on to graduate from The University of Wyoming in 2004. After obtaining a Bachelor's Degree in Business Finance, I accepted a position with First Interstate Bank in Missoula, Montana in the Commercial Banking division as a Management Trainee, and then as a Credit Analyst. After two years with First Interstate Bank, I made the decision to move into Investment Banking, and accepted a job as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch in Phoenix, Arizona. While at Merrill Lynch, I obtained my Series 7 license, Series 66 license, Life and Health Insurance license, and the professional designation of CRPC (Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor). After successfully graduating from the Merrill Lynch Training Program and establishing a book of clients, I chose to leave Merrill Lynch in August, 2008 and return to Sheridan to join my father at Cypress Capital Management, LLC as a Registered Investment Advisor.
Since moving back to my hometown of Sheridan, I have focused on becoming an active member in my state and community. I am currently a member of the local Rotary Chapter, where I have participated in volunteer activities such as Meals on Wheels for the Senior Center, Rotary Golf Tournament, and Polio Eradication. In January 2011, I joined the Wyoming State Golf Association's Board of Directors. As part of being a board member, I volunteer as team Wyoming's Captain for the Boys Junior America's Cup team. This is an annual, national tournament for junior golfers under the age of 18 that is heralded as one of the nation's top junior golf tournaments each year. I am also in volunteer representative of the University of Wyoming's Cowboy Joe Club for Sheridan County, helping out with CJC events throughout the year. Finally, I participated and became a recent graduate of the 2009/2010 class of The Sheridan Civic Project, sponsored by The Center for a Vital Community (CVC). This leadership program is designed to build teams that reflect the diversity of the community of Sheridan and to deepen understanding of community dynamics and strengthen skills for initiating and managing change. I am very happy to be back living in my hometown of Sheridan, and the wonderful state of Wyoming. I am engaged to be married in August to Denise Canfield, a 2006 graduate of the University of Wyoming.
