Matt Smith, our February Dallas Hero, has always believed in leading an integrated life — spending his time and talent on things he believes in. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Matt started his business career as a consultant with Deloitte. Inspired by Deloitte’s Impact Day and its pro bono consulting practice, Matt wanted to find opportunities where he could do that full time. So Matt joined PepsiCo when the company was starting its environmental marketing group, and he now runs PepsiCo’s Food for Good program.
