Hi Matt! Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?
I started in IT by joining the Boston College help desk during my Sophomore year and then started assembling and selling computers out of my dorm room a year later. After graduating, I began working full-time at Innovative Networks and, shortly thereafter, became a founding partner and eventual CTO of Tier1Net. Over the next 20 years, I helped build Tier1Net into one of the most well-respected MSPs in Boston. In 2019 Tier1Net was acquired by Thrive and now I have the pleasure of helping to build the most well-respected MSP in the world!
What do you most enjoy about working for Thrive?
Every day I learn something new from the talented and dedicated teammates I have at Thrive and truly love working with them to help scale Thrive’s processes to meet our rapid growth rate.
Any recent exciting projects at Thrive that you can tell us about?
I geek out over automation and was excited when we recently automated a critical step in Thrive’s process to onboard new customers into our Endpoint Security and Response service offerings.
