Matthews has been in the bureau for 10 years. He has covered everything from consumer products to Coca-Cola and the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
Before joining Bloomberg, Matthews was the business editor of the Tampa Tribune, where Levy was one of his reporters. Matthews was also an assistant business editor at the Charlotte Observer.

I have worked with and for Matthews. I respect him greatly as a business journalist.
