The flight-deck of an aircraft carrier is one of the most complex work environments on earth—a place where seemingly trivial communication errors can be fatal. Matt credits his decade in Naval aviation as the foundation for his tenacious Systems Thinking, Human Factors, and deep appreciation for just how complex and challenging ‘simple’ is to achieve.
Evolving from an electronics engineer to systems programmer, to process engineer Matt has led multiple IT departments within the Fortune 50—including the team responsible for building the nation’s largest healthcare data network serving over 400 hospitals, care centers, and offices. He has led multiple, high-profile IT project turnarounds and understands first-hand how projects impact and change an organization at every level. His unique ability to work effectively—side-by-side—across the layers of an organization, from the C-Suite to deep inside IT Operations and software development, allows him to create trust, open communications, and organizational alignment. Matt’s mantra is, “Alignment is a force multiplier.”
Matt has worked in the Finance, Marketing, Banking, Healthcare Delivery, and Health Insurance industries. He has an Industrial Engineering degree from Southern Illinois University, is an active member of the IEEE, and the IoT and Distributed Systems Initiatives. He’s a pilot, yoga and meditation instructor and lives in Boulder, Colorado.
