Matt served twenty-two years on active duty as a Supply Corps Officer within the United States Navy. Matt's operational tours included two sea tours on surface ships, USS Cole (DDG 67), and USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) where he served as a Supply Officer responsible for logistics operations to include maintenance and repair operations (MRO) for ship systems, food service, retail operations, pay operations, and repair part inventory management.

Matt also was a by-name request from Commander, International Security and Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan to lead a team within an anti-corruption task for focusing on targeting financial and material support networks funding insurgent organizations such as the Taliban and the Haqqani Network. Matt created and led a cross functional team of forensic accountants and military analysts tasked with “following the money” and counter threat finance, resulting in mitigation of malign behavior, impeding contracting with the enemy, and asset recovery.

As DOD faces growing threats from adversaries amidst supply chain uncertainties, budget headwinds, and a complex policy landscape, it’s essential that the acquisition ecosystem remain engaged and committed to delivering required capabilities to service members on time, and on budget. Decreasing the length of acquisition cycles through speed to innovation is essential, however, the acquisition process remains complex, and questions remain on best practices for everything from ensuring the reliability and readiness of potential partners through industry engagement and supplier relationship management, to breaking out of the siloed and insular processes that can often hinder innovation.

In this webcast, join GovExec, Salesforce, and Deloitte for a closer look at the trends, challenges and best practices for acquisition and procurement in the DOD space, and hear how government and industry alike are preparing their organizations for the next phase of technical and organizational excellence.
