Managing Director, Services
As Managing Director of Services at Praetorian, Matt has the privilege of nurturing some of the smartest engineers in the industry and the responsibility of ensuring our service lines evolve to remain at the bleeding edge of state of the art. He is focused on fostering an environment that encourages our engineers’ personal and professional growth and inculcates our core values, all to facilitate the team in delighting our clients daily.
Matt joined Praetorian when we were fewer than 20, and his experience fulfilling several roles within the company grants him insight to every aspect of our services organization. Most notably, he engineered solutions with and then led the Internet of Things team, helping to secure connected vehicles, medical devices, smart appliances, industrial automation, and critical infrastructure. He then applied that technical expertise in his role as an account manager, wherein he assisted our customers in translating their problems and competing priorities into projects that would lead to solutions.
Matt began his professional career at the CIA, where he provided analysis of foreign cyber espionage programs. In the course of his service, he earned six exceptional performance awards and a personal letter of commendation from a Senior Director at the National Security Council. Matt has a BS in Psychology from Davidson College and an MA in Security Studies from Georgetown University. When he is not working, you can find him grilling in the backyard or playing pretend with his son.
