BIO

Matt Bevin was sworn in as governor of Kentucky on December 8, 2015.

Bevin spent his childhood on a small farm in New Hampshire. After graduating from Washington and Lee University in 1989, Bevin was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army. After that, Bevin worked for many years in the financial industry. In 1999, a job with National Asset Management brought Bevin and his family to Kentucky and over the next 15 years, he founded several businesses in Kentucky and across the country.

Prior to his role as governor, Bevin served as president for his family’s bell manufacturing company. Bevin and his wife, Glenna, have nine children, ranging in ages from 5 to 16.

Spouse

Glenna Bevin, first lady of Kentucky, grew up in Cherokee, Oklahoma. After graduating from Northern Oklahoma College with a nursing degree, she worked as a registered nurse in hospital settings and with hospice care.

Mrs. Bevin’s priorities include supporting children and families by advocating for child abuse prevention and facilitating the adoption process for Kentucky families. The first lady and Governor Bevin have endowed various scholarship funds that provide educational opportunities for low-income youth nationwide, and they have supported projects that benefit orphans in India and Africa. In 2012, they established the Bevin Center for Missions Mobilization in memory of their oldest daughter, Brittiney.

The Bevins were married in 1996, and have nine children.
