Biography

Raised in a Jewish family,[1] Matthew Silverman graduated cum laude from Harvard College in 1998 after having graduated from the St. Mark's School of Texas in Dallas.[1]

Silverman began his career at Goldman Sachs in its Merchant Banking Division. At Goldman, he helped Stuart Sternberg structure his bid to purchase controlling interest in Major League Baseball's Tampa Bay Devil Rays. [2] Silverman was hired as president of the team and became part of the transition group that changed the name of the franchise from the Devil Rays to the Rays and contributed to the team's move from last place to the World Series in 2008. In January 2009, Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal named Silverman to its 2009 "Forty Under 40" list honoring accomplished and promising sports executives under age 40.

Silverman served as team president for nine years before becoming director of baseball operations in 2014. [3]

He currently resides in Tampa, Florida, where he is the team representative at the Tampa Bay Partnership and a board member of the Pinellas Education Foundation, the Positive Coaching Alliance [4] and the Hillsborough Education Foundation.
