Introducing Matt Wally to Worcester


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Matthew Wally and I was born and raised in Worcester, MA.  As the son of Worcester Public Schools educators , I am a proud graduate of the Worcester Public Schools.  I attended Thorndyke Road School as well as Burncoat Middle & Senior High Schools.  I am a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross with a degree in Political Science.  I received a master's degree in Community Development and Planning from Clark University.


I am married to Katie Bagdis Wally, a partner at Mountain Dearborn, LLP in Worcester. Katie is also a Holy Cross graduate. My parents are both retired educators from the Worcester Public Schools.  My father, Bob Wally, was the principal of Mill Swan Elementary School for many years.  I have a younger sister and brother.


I bought my first home, a classic Worcester "three decker" on Lincoln Street.  I am able to trace the origins of my family's history in the City of Worcester back more than 145 years, as my great-great grandparents were married at St. Paul's Cathedral in 1870.    


I am the Vice President of Audit/Community Reinvestment Act/Fair Lending at a local community bank..  My responsibilities include the management of bank performance as it relates to providing mortgages, small business loans and investments in the community.  I previously served as the New England Community Development Manager at TD Bank and as the Executive Director of Worcester Community Housing Resources a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to initiate and support neighborhood revitalization throughout greater Worcester.


I have served as a Member of Worcester's Park and Recreation Commission, a Director of the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, a Trustee Associate for the Nativity School of Worcester, a Steering Committee Member for the Worcester Tree Initiative, a Member of the Holy Cross Club of Greater Worcester, Clerk for Matthew 25, and Preservation Worcester's Endangered Structures Committee, as a Director for Habitat for Humanity Greater Worcester, and as the Chairman of the Massachusetts Community and Banking Council.
