interview with Wes Henry’s Business Connection Project  | panelist at Feb 2017 Executive Breakfast: Defining and Tracking Your KPIs

Matt Lachowitzer was a one-man show when he opened his first shop in the back of Tom’s Shoe Repair in Moorhead in June 2009. Within eight months, he bought the building and turned it into a four-bay shop. A couple of years ago, Matt bought a former bar on 43 ½ Street in Fargo, made an incredible investment and now, along with 18 employees services between 1600 and 1800 vehicles per month! In 2015 Matt was named Entrepreneur of the year by the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber. Matt credits 2 principles to their success… “I never put money in front of people and I try to hire the superstars,” he said. “Those are my two highest guiding principles. I’m only as good as the people I surround myself with.”  

Matt’s interest in the automotive industry started at his family’s farm working on anything with an engine he could get his hands on. He is an ASE Certified Master Automotive Technician and ASE Certified Service Advisor with over 23 years of experience in the industry. He is also a GM and Ford Master Technician and is very passionate about the automotive industry and making it better. One of his main goals is being able to change people’s perception of the automotive industry and helping people learn that the FM area has great service centers.

Matt’s passion for the automotive industry is fueled by being able to solve problems, seeing happy customers and knowing that every day is different, which keeps it fun and challenging. He’s incredibly proud of the team he has brought together and is always striving to be better.

In his limited free time, he loves to spend it with his wife, Char, children, Kalin, Ryker and Krimsyn. They like to go fishing, snowmobiling, going to the cabin, four wheeling and attending concerts!

Work 4025 4th Ave South Suite 2 Fargo ND 58103 Work Phone: 701.282.4477 Membership: August 3, 2017 Website: Northland Truss .com


Northland Truss Systems, Inc. was founded by Rick Pierce in 1992 and started with a handful of Truss Workers, two Truss Designers, one Truck Driver and an Office Manager.  Northland Truss designs and manufactures roof trusses and floor trusses for new construction.  Alpine Engineering of Pampano Beach, Florida approves all of our truss designs, in addition to furnishing the truss plates for manufacturing our trusses.

Rick Pierce hand-picked and thoroughly trained a top-notch management team.  With the passing of Rick on August 25, 2003, his wife Deb Pierce took over as the President and Owner of Northland Truss.  Deb guided our company in the direction that Rick had intended by working closely with the management team.  In May 2014 Deb sold Northland Truss to the management team which included Chris Lange, General Manager and President; Curt Mathias, Sales Manager and Corporate Secretary; Tim Nicklay, Production Manager and Vice President and Terry Short, Plant Manager and Treasurer.

With new ownership comes new improvements.  In spring 2015, a new roof truss table was purchased to increase productivity of roof trusses.  Also in 2015, 3 acres of land behind the plant was purchased to have extra storage space for completed trusses and to park trucks and trailers when not out on deliveries.

Work 6190 Martens Way South Fargo ND 58104 Work Phone: 701.219.4402 Membership: March 1, 2018 Website: Vistage .com


I lead Vistage CEO peer advisory groups and conduct one-to-one coaching sessions for North Dakota business executives who want to become better leaders, make better decisions, and achieve better results.

In the confidential group setting, we challenge assumptions in a non-judgmental manner and empower each other to move our businesses and personal lives forward. The only agenda is to foster each other’s development. It’s lonely at the top, with few people to provide unbiased advice or to hold us accountable. A Vistage group provides a safe place to ask tough questions and drive better results.
Vistage Worldwide is the world’s leading chief executive organization, with over 21,000 members in 20 countries. For more than half a century, Vistage has helped over 75,000 CEOs to grow their businesses, reach financial independence, manage stress, and achieve greater work/life balance.
