Matthew began his career at the specialist business publisher SMi, before moving to Emap Communications as a Group Head. He then worked at the Guardian for twelve years, in numerous roles. In his last position, Matthew was responsible for the commercial activity across Guardian Labs which culminated in the winning of Labs’ first ever D&AD pencil in 2016.
One project he is particularly proud of is the Guardian's International Development Journalism Competition.
