MATTHEW BARAN

Family Business is my background and my passion. From truck driver to IT COO, I have worked in just about every possible role inside a family business. Now, I am honored to be a Compass Point Family Business Advisor, assisting family-owned owners and their companies grow.

From 2003-2016 I worked for EXTOL International, my family's business. My career progression began as a Documentation Specialist. From there I moved on to Support Engineer, Managed Services Technician, and Director of Managed Services. In 2012 I became the Chief Operating Officer where I managed the company’s Sales, Product Development, and Services departments.

I earned my B.S. in Business Administration, Finance, and Communication from Bryant College (now Bryant University) in 2003, and a Certificate of Achievement for Corporate Leadership from Dale Carnegie & Associates in 2008

New Ringgold, Pennsylvania, is home base where my wife and I run our family farm, and our children play and learn valuable life lessons. 

I enjoy participating in a number of community activities, including:

  • Board Member, Schuylkill County Municipal Authority
  • Board Member, Schuylkil Economic Development Corporation
