13 years in the IT industry
After Matt completed his education he joined the family IT business as a technical engineer, and soon after began completing Microsoft certifications in the effort to upskill.
IT had moved on significantly and he felt the pressure to learn and catchup, by this point there were around 15 IT engineers he could learn from and the business had around 40 employees.
Several years later, the next step for Matt was a surprising one, his Dad suggested there was an opportunity to grow the data communications business. To work with data cabling, managed wireless and audio/visual solutions for schools. But before he could jump into this role, he had to prove himself as a telemarketer. A brutal role change, techie to sales in a hearbeat, this was a tough transition but before long he was a member of the data team.
