As a Risk management specialist with over fourteen years of delivery and management experience in the field, Matt is a highly-regarded strategic thinker in the discipline of Risk Management across multiple industries.
As a graduate management trainee with BAE Systems, Matt’s first role was in Risk Management. In the coming six years Matt would develop his project controls and project management skills with the company, initially as a member of staff, but later as an associate. His fast progression was an outcome of his ability to rapidly learn and apply project management fundamentals, resulting in a succession of successful deliveries at project, programme and portfolio level.
Since those early formative years, Matt has gone on to proudly support major clients such as Lockheed Martin, Manchester Airports Group, Arcadis, AWE, Cavendish Nuclear, Sellafield Limited, Jacobs and Balfour Beatty to name but a few.
He specialises in project, programme and portfolio risk management, with his flair to talk directly and honestly with teams and business leaders he is able to get the right processes, governance and delivery strategy in place; resulting in the truest forecasts on the table, so the right decisions can be made.
Matt’s effective and efficient approach to risk management ensures maximum value comes from his application of the innovative risk management process. No more do teams have to sit in dreary risk reviews or read through pages of complex and wordy reports that make no sense to them. Matt and the optimise team strip the process back to its most natural and most valuable form; saving time and money for our clients, whilst building confidence and recognition of the value of risk management in the businesses we work with. Matt’s record of continuously securing repeat work with our clients speaks for itself.
Matt has always been an energetic and enthusiastic businessman. He is considered by many as a born to be project professional. Although he has an extremely expansive knowledge and experience through other business support roles, Matt always knew he had found his home in the world of risk management.
