G. Anthony Harrigan
Chief Impact Officer
Anthony has a strong background in alternative investing as well as traditional investing methodology. He has held positions at Fidelity, JP Morgan Chase, Paine Webber and Citigroup Smith Barney. After learning the norms of the industry, he discovered that most high net worth individuals and families were not being served by the baskets of products and canned investment strategies. This insight helped him form Impact Wealth. As an entrepreneur, Anthony is keenly aware of the issues that business owners face.
On a personal side, Anthony attained his B.S. in Economics from Texas A&M University. He and his wife Kellie are active in their church, community, schools and philanthropy. They enjoy dining and travel when their three children – Mac, Zander, and Irish aren’t keeping them hopping to various events!

Director – Wealth Management
Matt Teegarden has had the privilege of spending the majority of his career with Teegarden Financial and to have been with Impact Wealth since its inception. He brings with him each day a conviction for the high purpose our firm plays in the lives of our clients; a belief born anew each time another family is served. Heading the firm’s planning and design operations, Matt thrives on the creative aspects of his role, looking at each new client situation with the excitement and expectancy an artist may when looking upon a blank canvas.
Matt lives in Longmont, CO, by way of small-town Indiana and Ball State University. He enjoys the finer pursuits of life with his kids as often as possible; skipping rocks, bike rides, drowning worms, being dressed up as anime characters, being humbled at video games, being introduced to the music of teens and the odd YouTube videos of pre-teens, and the thousand other things that make life worth living – the life of a parent. In his case, the life as a parent of four fantastic, dynamic kids.
