Who we are

Learn more about Trailhead Conference Team

Stephan Mathys: Founder & CEO

Stephan Mathys is a former actuary, rugby player, novelist, and visitor to the Taj Mahal. He's done a little bit of everything, including running around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, adopting a child, and winning a writing contest in third grade.


His mid-life "challenge" (not a crisis!) started at age 37, when, within 6 months, he had 4 major life changes happen in succession: his car died on the highway, his faith died in the pew, his career died in the cubicle, and his marriage died in the nursing home.


Since then he's been on his own exploration journey, including moving to a new city, starting a new job, starting new relationships, bicycling 100 kilometers for the first time ever, and becoming an accidental entrepreneur. He is proud to be part of the team presenting the Trailhead Conference to other seekers, helping them realize they're not alone during this time when they're trying to figure out what they want to say to the world, and how they want to say it.


He can be reached at or 1-833-TRAIL HC (833-872-4542)
