Education is a recurring theme in our Vice President of Sales’ life. As a child, his dad — our company founder — was a social studies teacher, and Matt grew up reading history and sci-fi books.
Matt would help out with the family business after school and “managed floor cleaning crews comprised of people twice my age,” Matt remembers. “My dad gave me a lot of responsibility at an early age and encouraged me to do my best. It was never his way or else, he taught me to lead.”
Matt continues to broaden his education with many facets of the industry and has completed courses and training in Asbestos Abatement, Lead-Based Paint Abatement, Indoor Air Quality, Mold Removal, Building Performance Monitoring, and Mechanical Air Duct Cleaning. Furthermore, he is certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) as an Air Systems Cleaning Specialist, and a Ventilation System Mold Remediator. He is also certified by the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association (IKECA) as a Certified Exhaust Cleaning Specialist and a Certified Exhaust System Inspector.
Wanted Business to Succeed
As a student at Drexel University, Matt had the opportunity to work at cooperative education jobs with the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and MAB Paints. These experiences solidified his knack for sales and communicating with people. Having a minor in Psychology sure helped too! When he entered Drexel he really had no plans of working with his father until his last co-op job here, and asked his dad if he could stay. “I always wanted our family business to succeed and I would do anything to contribute to that,” Matt says.
Face of the Company
Although Matt may be the “face” of the company, he admits his brother Chuck makes it work. “I like building up the company,” he says. “It is exciting to see it grow!” While his typical day is “on the road,” meeting with customers and getting behind the scenes on various jobs, he spends a lot of time at the office working on reports, estimates, and marketing the business.
Since joining us in 1986, Matt’s responsibilities have included marketing, sales, estimating and project management. Since 1990, he has provided project estimating and management for hundreds of air duct cleaning, microbiological remediation and specialty cleaning projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Volunteers at International Association
In March 2003, Matt became an elected member of the Board of Directors at NADCA – The HVAC Inspection, Maintenance and Restoration Association. He has served on its Executive Board as Treasurer, Secretary, 2nd Vice President, 1st Vice President and currently serves as President. NADCA is an internationally recognized association of approximately 1,000 contractors that set the standards and provide certification and training for the HVAC cleaning industry.
Spending time with his wife and two young sons is important to Matt. Once avid sailors and international travelers, he and his wife plan to experience these adventures again when their sons are older.
