  • I have had the pleasure to collaborate with Matt within in our Medical Device Sales Organization. His focus on strategy to effectively grow and drive the digital enterprise, as well as his focus on process and teamwork is exemplary. Matt always impresses me with his genuine interest in helping customers succeed. He takes the time to listen carefully and to address core causes of pain a customer may not have even been aware of, while challenging their approach and methodology. As a coworker, I am impressed with Matt’s organization skills, dedication, and his ability to understand a wide range of technologies, specifically simulation. Matt is a talented business development expert. His experience developing markets for high technology solutions is outstanding. He is innovative, dynamic, and tireless, and his enthusiasm motivates people around him at all levels.
