Meet Grandpa Harvey and his grandson, Matthew. Harvey has worked with Thrivent since 1992. Matthew joined in 2018, but he knew long before then that this would be his life's work.
"When I was about 15 or 16 years old, my grandpa asked me if I'd want to work at Thrivent one day," Matthew explains. "I immediately said yes, so I had the idea in my mind. Ever since then, I had a plan and stuck with it."
"That's true," echoes Harvey. "I brought up the idea that working for this organization would be a blessing and told him he should really consider it. Working for Thrivent has been incredible. They have been very good to me."
"It's nice to work together," Matthew continues. "We get along really well. We work together for about 70% of the time on any given day. Some days, we are each busy with our different meetings. That's actually my favorite part. Talking with my members … whether it's just discussing life or figuring out how I can help them."
Harvey agrees: "Working with Matthew is awesome. I really enjoy having a family member helping with the transition process as I get closer to retiring one day in the future. But, for right now, the best part of working together is that we are always learning from each other."
"Yes! I definitely learn something new every single day in working with my grandpa," Matthew smiles. "We are able to bounce ideas off each other to come up with great solutions."
