Just a couple of bright sparks
Matthew, Founder & Chief Technology Officer
As a young boy, Matthew always had the need to know how things worked. Taking things apart, exploring their inner workings and then putting them all back together was his greatest joy. When he was 13 he received his first computer, and a new man was born. For the next 22 years Matthew immersed himself in anything and everything computer and technology related. Starting his first tech-support business at only age 15, Matthew went on to advance his technical abilities by attending Ryerson University where he obtained a Bachelors of Commerce degree in the study of Information Technology Business Management. This area of knowledge rounded out his expertise, opening his eyes to how business truly depends on IT. Since then Matthew has applied his skills at some of Toronto's largest and finest Organizations. Now Matthew brings his knowledge and exposure of Enterprise systems, policies and procedures to the small and medium sized businesses; helping this important business group realize what can be possible when effectively using the right technology - without breaking the bank.
Matthew is now on a steady course to leverage new ideas, implement new technologies and expand the offerings of Mackenzie Technology Solutions to his new and current clients.
Matthew is a member of the Board of Directors for the following Organizations:
Matthew's primary business goal: Adding profits to business by implementing technologies that work.
Matthew's Pet Peeve: Being forced to spend more money than something seems worth
Matthew's thought for the day: "Any technology system can be scaled down to the right size, at the right price, to have a real effect on small businesses"
