Executive Officers

CMatt has spent 25 years working in the defence and telemetry arena.

He has a degree in GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and remote sensing.

Initially as a defence contractor, he was promoted quickly to board level. From there, in a business development role, he secured a major contract that lead to the formation of a new business that was spun off from the parent company. After running that business for a number of years, he went to join his wife, who had set up NFC now (Smarter Technologies Group).

Smarter Technologies Group evolved from component sales into solution sales, and finally into being focused on delivering the privately-owned Orion Data Network. Creating disruptive technical solutions has always been Matt’s business goal.
