Matt is a former college and professional hockey player and is very excited to be able to help former athletes to launch their next career in sales. The Pittsburgh office will be run by a partnership of former Duquesne football player Phil Elias and notable hockey agent Steve Reich.

Everyone on the NexGoal team is celebrating the completion of training camp – both new franchisees graduated and are ready to get down to business!

Matt, Phil and Steve will be working with NexGoal’s support staff and NexGoal’s corporate trainer Doug Beabout throughout their start up months and for many successful years to come.


  “I am very excited to be joining the NexGoal team!  The opportunity to help former college and professional athletes come together with businesses is a winning formula for everyone.  I look forward to placing competitive, driven athletes with companies looking for top caliber business talent!”

– Matt Ruchty


 “Phil and I are very excited to join the NexGoal team.  Working with employers to fulfill meaningful employment opportunities with former athletes is a natural extension of what Phil and I have done over the past two decades.
