Matt is our big picture guy or, as we like to call him, the “man at the whiteboard”. With so much of what we do being focused on the details, it’s imperative that we have someone around to keep focus on the big picture and overall goals of our clients. Matt takes on that role and brings a logical business approach to client needs while staying astutely attuned to ROI and the bottom line.
