Head of Product Innovation, hellomonday

Matthew is a very committed and energetic marketing professional. He is constantly looking for new ways to achieve the better outcome than his last. His greatest quality is using evidence based approaches to get real results. Everything that I have seen Matthew achieve involved a variety of sophisticated quantitative and qualitative metrics. As a consequence some of the outcomes he was able to achieve while working at Onetest were simply great. He uses his team to great effect and provides them with complete autonomy to use their skill set.

I moved into Matt’s department and instantly knew what to expect – he was going to push me to achieve what he knew I could, but without micro managing. Matt expects excellence in other people (an attitude he and I share) and this only encourages you to live up to it. Matt embodies passion and intelligence to the point of being a true marketing geek.
