Matt Hansen

Vice President of Development
Transforming underutilized, often unsightly areas of town into vibrant developments that communities enjoy is what Matt Hansen does best. The Vice President of Development discovered his passion for bringing people back to urban areas more than a decade ago and has continued to take on substantial projects that diversify and elevate PEG Companies, ever since.

Matt is accomplished in all phases of commercial real estate development, from concept to construction closeout and property management. A true student of the industry who makes it a priority to attain a comprehensive understanding of every market PEG enters, Matt shares his knowledge with both internal and external partners. He enjoys the mentorship component of his role in facilitating the performance of development managers at PEG.

Matt is known for his unique ability to design and execute projects using strategies with which everyone wins. He is consistently creating new opportunities to boost property values, encourage walkability, and beautify surrounding areas while maximizing returns for PEG and its investors. While striking the perfect balance of development factors is not easy, Matt firmly believes that there is always a solution for every problem. He says such solutions are found through thinking creatively and evaluating the “bigger picture” from various viewpoints and perspectives.

Matt earned his BS degree in Planning and Resource Management from Brigham Young University and his MS degree in Geography from The University of Utah.
