Matt is the owner and Managing Director of Brigantes Consulting Limited. Brigantes was established to enable the development and supply of technical outdoor equipment and clothing to the military.
A former regular Royal Marines Officer he saw operational experience in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Upon leaving full time service he immediately joined the Royal Marines Reserve. Whilst as a reservist he mobilised for a second time to Afghanistan. Upon his return he trained within media operations and was involved in the military support to the London Olympics and completed full time reserve service delivering command training to regular Royal Marines.
Matt founded Brigantes in January 2014 as an offshoot from his family business, which had been involved within the Outdoor Industry for over 40 years. Before branching off from the family business he was the International Sales Director for Original Mountain Marathon (OMM). During this time he grew sales across Europe and Japan.
Matt supports Heropreneurs with business start up workshops. These focus on helping service leavers and their families to identify and develop business ideas and concepts so that they can establish successful businesses themselves.
