Matt graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2000, with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. After graduation, he was hired by the Carrier Corporation as a commercial sales engineer. Matt was the single point of contact for over 20 consulting engineering firms in the greater Milwaukee area, assisting in the design of numerous multimillion-dollar HVAC construction projects. Two of his larger projects were the design and installation of semi-truck–sized air-handling units with hospital-grade HEPA filtration systems, for both the St. Luke’s Hospital in Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin Microbiology building in Madison. In 2003, Matt started his own business in Madison, Wisconsin, as a local dealer for Cingular Wireless/AT&T. He grew the business to over $2 million per year revenue while managing day-to-day operations, 25 employees, and 3 retail locations. Matt implemented a custom inventory management system to track all of the phone activations and corresponding commission details, resulting in greater operational efficiency. Matt hopes to bring his passion for business and his strong interest in supply chain management to a multinational technology corporation. Matt serves locally, both as a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program and through outreach programs at his church.
