Matthew ran his own business-to-business communications agency for over 20 years before deciding to make a change in career path after ‘lockdown’. While still retaining a few clients in the veterinary/animal health sector, a large proportion of his time is now spent working in the outdoor event industry.

Matthew has been an active member of the VMA Committee for over 15 years, during which time he has been Chairman and Treasurer. He is still actively involved as part of the VMA Awards sub-committee.

In what little spare time he has, Matthew is mad about running and takes every opportunity to get out of the office with his two loyal, and completely mad Cocker Spaniels to explore the countryside.
