Building Partnerships

In his role as Vice President of Inclusive Talent Solutions (ITS), Matt shares the mission of PRIDE Industries with large public and private companies nationwide. Under Matt’s leadership, the ITS team sources, trains, and provides ongoing support to people with disabilities employed at partner companies, helping these organizations maximize the benefits of an inclusive workforce. ITS also offers easy-to-use services for training and staffing to help businesses across the country create and manage a diverse workforce, and provides strategic consulting services to companies on issues related to diversity and inclusivity.

Dreaming Big

Before joining PRIDE Industries, Matt spent many years with Mattress Firm (formerly Sleep Train), where he was responsible for designing and implementing the company’s highly successful Total Rewards program, a performance-based sales incentive initiative. He also oversaw talent acquisition, talent development for executives, and field education for sales and operations at the company. While at Mattress Firm, Matt led DREAM University, a unique program designed to prepare the company’s next generation of high performers by offering instruction in Learning and Development, Talent Acquisition, Rewards, and Performance Management.

Dives and Divots

Matt attended California State University, Sacramento, where he studied biology, business, and philosophy. He now serves his alma mater as an adjunct faculty member, teaching professional development courses at the university’s College of Continuing Education. Matt is a director for the Sacramento Metro Chamber of Commerce and an active participant in the Ticket to Dream Foundation, which works with children in foster care across the country. In his spare time, he is an avid scuba diver with over 300 dives under his weight belt, and he also enjoys the (more than) occasional round of golf.
