Matt Newill '08 Discusses Alum-Led Nonprofit in Radio Interview

January 6, 2012

"The three of us that started it all went to DePauw University, just down the road," Matt Newill tells Inside Indiana Business of the not-for-profit True Hero Ties.  Launched on Veterans Day 2011, the organization sells neckties, with 50% of the proceeds sent to U.S. veterans organizations.

Newill, a 2008 graduate of DePauw University, partnered with Johnny Buchta '08 and Ryan Tinker '09 to launch the venture (all three were Management Fellows at DePauw).  In an interview aired statewide, Newill says response to their concept has been very good.
