Mat has built a career developing long-lasting connections between brands, their customers and communities. Having contributed to a range of technology startups in New Zealand, Australia and Germany, he was drawn to blockchain by the undiscovered potential of this nascent technology. The community management role plays directly to Mat’s strengths, allowing him to orchestrate a global community-based movement and accelerate Lisk’s vision. He is excited to see the impact blockchain technology will have on various industries, in particular, how it will address current environmental challenges. Mat holds a Bachelor of Communications from the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand.
