During his more than 17 years with Playworld Systems, Matthew has worked from the ground up, taking leadership roles in various positions within the company to learn and fully understand the business.

Matthew has placed a high priority on ensuring Playworld Systems’ world-class ownership experience, and championed the development of PlayPod™ as the industry’s first mobile 24/7-customer service tool.
