Matt is a Senior Director in BIE’s Technology Leadership Practice, where he collaborates with leaders to help them shape and develop effective hiring strategies and to attract and retain the most suitable interim Technology talent in the market.

Matt has operated in the executive hiring market for over a decade, with a proven track record of cultivating lasting relationships with individuals and businesses seeking critical solutions in the form of interim consultants or advisors. He has collaborated with global enterprises across various industries and ownership structures, ranging from Global PLCs to PE & VC backed organisations, typically headquartered out of the UK or Europe.

He co-leads the interim Technology & Transformation team with his colleague Cyr. Their division focuses on providing interim leadership solutions to Technology functions and aiding in the mobilisation of technology-led transformation programmes by appointing interim consultants/advisors.

Also known as ‘Whippy’ to his colleagues, Matt was born in Paris before relocating back to the UK with his family. Matt now has a young family of his own and outside of work he enjoys spending time with his wife, two daughters and his dog Milo. Playing sports and travelling are two of his keen interests.

"I have known Matt for a number of years, and have had the privilege of working with him as both a hiring manager and a candidate. He is always incredibly professional and extremely supportive in both capacities. He gives very clear, candid feedback throughout the process on both sides of the fence, which sounds simple but is actually increasingly rare."
Julia McDonough, Jagex

"Matt is an emotionally intelligent, collaborative and highly personable individual who is a pleasure to work with. He is responsive to the needs of both candidate and clients, and works hard to put the two together and then maintain and facilitate the ongoing work and relationship as needed. I’ve worked with a lot of recruitment professionals over the last 25 years and Matt is one of the best."
Fiona Wendler, Epifany Limited

"Matt has been one of my key contacts for many years. Very positive personality and is highly recommended."
Antony Scarfo, PKY Business Transformation
