Mr. Daly is currently the managing member of several active companies.
Pacific Coast Gaming - an Indian gaming development and management company, providing years of development and operational expertise to Indian Tribes nationwide.
Mr. Daly, a CPA for over 20 years, began his career in the early 1990's working as an auditor for the Minneapolis office of Arthur Andersen & Co. At that time, AA&Co. was one of the top three audit, tax, and consulting firms in the world.
Matt has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Tribes across the country in the form of day care centers, college scholarships, and cultural and athletic activities.
Mr. Daly has assisted in taking companies public and helped take Minneapolis airline Sun Country Airlines out of bankruptcy and return it to profitability. He has negotiated financing and joint venture arrangements with private equity sources (Franklin Capital Group - Peabody, MA; Michels Pipeline Construction - Milwaukee WI), publicly traded companies (Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Lakes Entertainment, International Gaming Technology, PDS Financial,...), and local and regional banks across the country.
For over a decade, Matt coached USA Hockey sanctioned ice and roller hockey teams in the Southwest and Minnesota, and employed dozens of local high school and college students while training them in basic property maintenance, painting, and landscaping.
After just a few years in public accounting, Matt was hired as the CFO for WinAmax Corporation, a Minneapolis based Indian gaming management company building casinos throughout the Midwest. In just a few years after his tenure as WinAmax' CFO, Mr. Daly formed his own gaming development company, Pacific Coast Gaming. By his early 30's he was responsible for over a dozen casino development projects and companies across the United States. Matt oversaw or assisted with projects in the states of Washington, Missouri, Kansas, California, Arizona, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Florida.
After spending 15 years in Arizona and Nevada overseeing his casino development companies, in 2008 Mr. Daly moved his wife Shari, and their four children back to rural MN, where they could enjoy outdoor hockey, skiing, hunting, fishing, and camping as he did growing up in the Midwest.
