Next Gen Rising

A born leader: Matt Ran is Past President (and an EPIC fundraiser) for Federation’s NEXTGen Detroit. Now Co-chair of the National Young Leadership Cabinet, Matt is also V.P. of Michigan ORT and a member of the boards of Federation, Yad Ezra and the JCC of Metro Detroit. On the path to career volunteerism at 33, Matt also has a “day job” – spearheading business growth and development at Telemus– a financial life management company co-founded by his father and two uncles. Influenced by the many role models for active community engagement in his family, Matt often refers to the legacy of his great grandfather, Phillip Stollman (z”l), a guiding light in Detroit philanthropy, and a founding patron of Young Israel in Oak Park and Bar-Ilan University in Israel. “I never forget that I am the son, the grandson and great-grandson of outstanding community leaders and I am forever grateful for those connections.”
