Director of PMO
Matthew oversees the entire provisioning process, which includes the work of the QOS project managers. His primary mission is to assure that customer orders are placed correctly with the carriers and to own the provisioning process through circuit delivery, equipment installation, and activation.

Furthering his Cisco education led to more opportunities in technical support and project engineering on the carrier side, which in turn led him to project engineer the largest client for QOS at the time. He feels that QOS’ approach and his abilities were a natural fit, and as a result, he is a technical resource to clients by working directly with vendors to assist with voice and data challenges throughout the process.
Matt values doing right by QOS’ customers and partners and believes that’s what is most important to this company. By taking care of the partners, we are able to help them scale their business more quickly than many of our competitors, which sets apart QOS Networks from other companies. Matt believes clients choose our company because we have the technical expertise and industry experience to design a solution that works for them. This saves our clients money over the long haul as the solutions we provide are efficient for their needs. By leading a strong and knowledgeable project management team, Matt ensures services are installed quickly, allowing Matt time to pinpoint and assist with carrier repairs and escalations when needed.
“Having a carrier background, I understand different vendors’ networks and processes.
