From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all who voted today. I’m ready to get to work on moving Kentucky forward. We are Kentucky!
Bevin’s net worth is between $13.4 million and $54.9 million, according to filings with the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee. But his stump speech often includes stories about growing up poor in Shelburne, New Hampshire. Gardens and farm animals helped feed the family of eight.
The President of Bevin Brothers Manufacturing Company, couldn’t have done it alone. Meet Glenna Bevin, his better half.
Glenna Bevin met her then future hubby in 1990 . She was a registered nurse (RN) while Matt was on active duty at Ft. Polk in Louisiana. Glenna Bevin was working at a civilian hospital near where Matt was stationed. They were married in 1996.
After his military service, Matt worked for many years in the financial industry. In early 1999, a job opportunity with National Asset Management brought Matt and Glenna, to Kentucky, where they decided to put down roots and raise their family. Their oldest daughter was two months old at the time. Over the next 15 years, Matt founded several local firms and invested in a number of other companies in Kentucky and around the United States. These companies range from manufacturing to investment management to medical devices. They employ dozens of people and annually provide millions of dollars in payroll and benefits to hard working Americans.
Glenna Bevin and her hubby are the busy and proud parents of nine children ages 5-16. Glenna Bevin became the birth mother of the couple’s five children and the adoptive mother of four children from Ethiopia, totaling 9 kids.
Glenna Bevin is Mom to Grace, MacKenzie, Madison, Olivia, Sophia, Isaac, Lydia, Jonah and Danial.
They live in a home valued at $703,860 and drive a 12-passenger van that she nicknamed Apollo 12.
In 2012, Matt and his wife Glenna established the Bevin Center for Missions Mobilization in memory of their oldest daughter Brittiney.
Glenna will get even busier now that her hubby’s win has automatically made her Kentucky’s first lady. Last month she spoke about turning her love for kids, into her passion as a first lady. “Child protective services; that’s very near to my heart. I’m all about the kids and making sure they’re taken care of” she said.
