Professional references:

Owen McGirr, AVP at AT&T

Matt is a strong relationship sales professional who works very hard to understand his client's environment and the challenges they face as well as possible solutions to resolve issues and improve a situation.

Matt also brings dogged persistence to the workplace and always gives it his best in the face of any and all challenges. He is an enthusiastic person with a strong work ethic and sense of integrity.

Joe Konkol, Consultant at AT&T

Matt is perhaps the single hardest working sales professional with whom I have ever worked. As a sales professional at ATT I had the pleasure of seeing him close two (2) sales with companies that had NEVER purchased from ATT. For 10+ years I watched and supported different sales teams efforts to close sales with these businesses only to fail. Matt was successful in both instances and for one sold over 11 managed services from ATT and the first hosted unified communications service in the sales region that resulted in over $250k in new monthly revenue on a sales quota 1/6 of that. Matt is tenacious, friendly and does not take "no" from inside his own company as an answer always looking to provide the customer with service.

Michele Stone, Sales Director at AT&T

Matt was on my team as a Sales Executive for several years and was promoted to a Sales Account Lead (SAL) based on his work ethic, sales performance (driven by large, key accounts) and his sales persistence when working with customers.
