As Associate Account Director, Matt serves as a senior account leader who establishes senior-level client relationships with Dotted Line’s growing clients. While working closely with our strategy and creative teams to meet client goals and deliver ROI, Matt’s 10-plus years of marketing experience bring valuable assets to help our agency and clients go to the next level.
Prior to joining Dotted Line, Matt’s experiences included the Washington Nationals and its ballpark enterprises department; field marketing management with the independently owned coconut water brand Vita Coco; RedPeg Marketing, an experiential-focused agency; and brand manager experience at Smithfield Foods, the American pork producer and food-processing company. His brand and marketing-related, large-scale, multi-facet marketing experiences include brands such as GEICO, Virginia Lottery, Texas on Tour, Volkswagen, Capital One, Smithfield, Farmer John and Farmland.
A Tidewater (or “757”) native with degrees from James Madison University (undergraduate) and Old Dominion University (M.B.A.), Matt grew up playing basketball and baseball. Now, you can find him on the tee ball field or on the basketball court with his oldest daughter and taking the coaching gigs perhaps a bit too seriously. You can also find him, his wife and two daughters at a beach or a pool with family and friends when it’s warm outside and enjoying their time at home with their new lap dog (also a girl – he’s outnumbered).
