As an accomplished digital leader, I specialise in driving digital transformations that increase organisational growth and deliver on commercial goals. With 18 years of UX experience and 8 years of senior leadership experience, I’ve established UX, UX Research, and UI Design as new business functions, scaled departments to meet future demand, and built state-of-the-art UX research labs for both B2B and B2C organizations.

By setting digital strategy, empowering teams and implementing DesignOps, I drive the creation of compelling, innovative digital-first experiences that achieve reduced time to market, risk, and cost. I’m passionate about evangelising user experience principles and brand governance across all digital platforms while championing the importance of a joined-up, consistent digital experience.

If you’re looking for a collaborative, user-focused digital leader who can drive growth and create meaningful change, let’s talk. I’m always eager to connect with like-minded professionals and explore new opportunities for success.

Available for opportunities from September 2023.


Matt enables the team the opportunity to be completely creative, he pulls us up when we aren’t working effectively keeping us on track, but also allows a space for us to share our thoughts no matter how crazy they may be. He works hard to ensure we are building a great team and gives us the autonomy to be just that.

I first met Matt when he hired me as a UX Designer at Covea Insurance. I will always remember how friendly, supportive, and approachable Matt was when I first joined the team which meant that I was able to feel confident and part of the team straight away, even though I joined the team during the lockdown in 2020 when everyone was working at home!

Matt has always supported me with my career progression, trusted me to work on a variety of complex projects to challenge me and allowed me to be exposed to various situations to help me to grow not only as a designer but as an aspiring leader. I learnt a lot from Matt in the time we worked together and for that I will be forever grateful.

Matt was a key part in building the teams’ visibility throughout Covea, making sure the team structure was aligned with the business strategy, creating the future vision for the team and championing UX at all levels which was crucial to the team’s success.

Matt is very knowledgeable, a strategic thinker and always took a considered approach to make sure he was doing the right thing for the team and the business. He was an absolute pleasure to work for and I’d like to thank him for his continued support!!
