Matt Butler - President

MATT BUTLER

President

Matt started his career in construction as a carpenter working in the family business. He founded Traine Construction in 2000. At that time, it was a provider of construction management to a large rental home developer. Matt’s ability to form strong relationships with industry professionals quickly elevated the company to the successful business it is today. Matt is proud that Traine is recognized for the team that brings both development, design and execution to multi-family housing.

Matt’s free time is enjoyed with his wife Lori, their family of five, and riding anything motorized (from dirt bikes to excavators).
