Matt couldn’t be more excited or proud to be part of the incredible team at DDS. Having worked closely with Dale for more than ten years as IT Manager at Codale Electric Supply, he has long recognized and appreciated the innovative, decisive, go-big-or-go-home mindset that Dale brings to the table. He is equally impressed, day after day, at the amazing group of talented staff at DDS and the technology they are building, and he looks forward to the challenges and successes that come from helping distributors and manufacturers conquer their e-commerce goals.
Matt was born in Nebraska (Go Huskers!) and raised in Wyoming (Go Pokes!), where he grew up living by one of his dad’s favorite mantras: “You’ve gotta be tough to live in the West.” He has always enjoyed going “full speed”—starting out on bicycles and dirt bikes, joining the ski patrol in college, and logging some serious hours on a snowboard—a quest that continues today, where you’ll find him testing the limits of his Polaris RZR (and occasionally, his wife) as often as he can.
After attending the University of Wyoming, Matt was more than ready to start applying his skills and determination toward real-life projects. He moved to Salt Lake City in 1999, where he was able to pursue some great opportunities in IT management roles. While the focus of his work experience has been on information technology, he has always had an interest in and a knack for the business and operations side of things, enjoying all aspects of the entrepreneurial process.
When he’s not working, Matt enjoys camping, ATV-ing, bowling, woodworking, and hanging out with his wife Jenny and their “spirited” young Dane (she hasn’t earned her “Great” yet), Macy.
