About Matt

Matt Shoup Founded M & E Painting with only $100 to his name in 2005.  He did this after being laid off from the corporate world.  This event only reignited Matt’s true passion for entrepreneurship, and he has never looked back.   M & E Painting was founded on the principles that governs Matt’s life—integrity, courage, determination, excellence, and passion.  Since then, M & E Painting has grown to a multi-million-dollar, award winning company and Northern Colorado’s largest and most recognized painting contractor.  From 2005 to 2010, the company grew 500%!  Local and nationwide press and media recognize M & E as a business of merit that has fostered a loyal and dedicated team and customer base, and the M & E brand is synonymous with pursuit of excellence, growth, superior leadership, commitment to quality and giving back to the community. Since inception, M & E Painting has served over 3,400 clients and maintains a 98.6% customer satisfaction rating.  In 2009, Matt founded his second company Shoup Consulting.  Matt’s mission is to inspire entrepreneurs around the world.  He does this by speaking, writing, and coaching.
