Boise-born entrepreneur Matt Oppenheimer rises in Seattle financial-tech sector

August 16, 2016View for printing

Business leaders, politicos and many others know his family name. The Oppenheimers are a Boise legacy.

Matt Oppenheimer's grandfather started the Oppenheimer Cos. food processing, sales, and marketing and commercial real estate business. His father is Arthur F. "Skip" Oppenheimer, the company's CEO.

But to build his own headline-making business, Oppenheimer had to move. Now in Seattle, the 34-year-old Boise native is running his first startup -- a financial-technology business, Remitly , that handles more than $1 billion a year in transactions for hundreds of thousands of customers sending money home to the Philippines, Mexico and other countries.
