About Mat

As a career events and hospitality sales professional, I learned to appreciate working on great teams within great company cultures. Once the COVID-19 pandemic decimated both the events and hospitality industries, I found myself in need of a complete career shift and recruiting talent had always been a passion. I’m grateful that Peterson Consulting presented an opportunity to enhance my career by helping others do the same.


What I love about recruiting:

I love learning the stories behind the applicants, as well as the companies we recruit for.  I’m humbled by those who have blazed trails and fought through adversity to find success and it’s very rewarding to connect good people with one another.
