Meet our newest team member – Matt!
VAPAR has recently added a new team member to our ranks – we’d like to introduce Matt!
Joining the VAPAR team as our Digital Marketing Manager, Matt will be responsible for bringing new organisations to the VAPAR platform, helping them to optimise the tracking, repair and maintenance of their asset infrastructure.
We sat down with Matt to find out about his background and discover what makes him tick, both at work, and away from the office.
Nice to meet you Matt! Tell us a little about your background prior to becoming a Vaparino.
MP: Thanks for having me! I’ve held a variety of really cool roles prior to joining the VAPAR team. Most recently, I’ve worked for Engineers Australia, specialising in digital communications, content, and member engagement. I’ve also spent time as CEO of another digital start-up called Ezi Debt Collection. Professionally, I’d say that I most enjoy roles where I’m able to get audiences and customers excited with my work.
What made you want to join the VAPAR team?
MP: There’s a few reasons. VAPAR has already proven that it has an exciting, innovative platform which presents an easy-to-use, intelligent solution to an industry which has remained stagnant for decades. The personnel is also absolutely a selling point; the VAPAR team has a reputation for being supportive, creative and collaborative; based on my experience so far, this reputation is well-deserved. Finally, VAPAR is an exciting, growing company that has the potential to serve globally – who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
What would we typically find you doing away from the office?
MP: I love going on adventures or camping with my partner, Lauren, and my dog, Dash. I really enjoy getting creative in the kitchen, especially cooking for my friends and family. I’m an avid fan of pretty much every kind of sport, particularly football, basketball, martial arts and Formula 1. If I’m looking to wind down, I’ll usually do so with a movie or a good book.
What’s your favourite holiday spot?
MP: I absolutely love the NSW South Coast, and go to Callala Beach in Jervis Bay regularly. Otherwise, I gravitate towards quiet, natural places – an amazing view is always a bonus.
It’s your last night on earth – what’s your final meal?
MP: My Nan’s chicken curry – nostalgia is the best seasoning.
