The 1980s was a go-go time for the world of finance and Wall Street. While it was easy for people to make money in this time, the world of finance was fiercely competitive with long hours and “burn out” common. In this tough environment, Matthew Autterson was able to thrive. In fact, it wasn’t long after his first job that Mr. Autterson put together a team to assemble a Colorado State-chartered trust company. The company was organized to become a subsidiary of Integrated Resources, Incorporated. Mr. Autterson’s success at the chartered trust prompted him to be named the president of Resources Trust Company in 1986.
Less than five years out of school, Mr. Autterson had reached the very top of a growing trust company. However, Mr. Autterson was not done.

In 2001, Mr. Autterson’s company was again acquired, this time by Fiserv.
