Matthew S. Hurley, founder and president of Hurley Auctions headquartered in Greencastle, Pennsylvania, has been a successful auctioneer, appraiser, and broker since 1996. Some boys dream of becoming a policeman or a firefighter when they grow up, but at five years of age, Matt had his sights set on being an auctioneer. Not only did his boyhood dream become a reality, but Hurley’s skill and dedication to his career has allowed him to reach several milestones in his profession.
Earlier this year, Matt was presented the Roy S. F. Angle award for 2018 Business Person of the Year which is given to a business leader who exemplifies commitment to the community, avidly supports its organizations and works to make the community a better place. He was also inducted as a National Auctioneers Association Education Institute Trustee for a 3 year term starting July 2018.
Other honors received were the 2016 Auctioneer of the Year by the Pennsylvania Auctioneers Association, Pennsylvania State Champion Auctioneer as well as the highest honor awarded to bid callers in both Pennsylvania’s "Champion of Champions" and Florida’s “Sunshine State Bid Calling Champion”.
