Matt Macko


Founder & Tenant Representation



Before founding stok, Matt gained over six years of experience in project and construction management while founding and growing MAK Contracting, a New England construction company. Following the sale of MAK, he moved west to start stok – a real estate advisory  firm focused exclusively on helping mission-driven organizations realize the financial benefit from strategic investments in sustainable buildings.

Over the past decade at stok, Matt has grown the team to over 30 passionate leaders in the sustainable real estate industry. He has developed robust tools to assess the residual value of investments in sustainability, particularly where those investments are connected to physical assets. He is also credited with co-developing new methods for stakeholder engagement, allowing teams to find better ways to achieve their project goals. On a daily basis however, Matt is focused on developing the team and business model, and ensuring the stok purpose and values are communicated.

Matt has been involved with virtually all of stok’s projects from the company’s inception in 2008. His recent accomplishments include work on six commercial Net Zero Energy (NZE) projects, including one of the largest NZE retrofits in the United States. He has also helped 18 projects achieve LEED Platinum certification, including Salesforce Tower, 535 Mission, and DPR Construction’s Headquarters in San Francisco. Furthermore, he has developed client relationships with six of the fifteen most valuable companies in the world and managed eight staff augmentation contracts for various municipalities.
