Founder & CEO
Still in school, he successfully exited that business and began working in a hospital, and he started studying biology as well. Matthew’s personality and willingness to learn jump-started his career in medicine. He moved up as a sterile processing technician and shortly after, the Operating Room asked him to become a certified surgical / anesthesia technician.
After graduating college, he took a sales support job for a freight company to learn more about the sales process and reporting. A year later, he began working for Depuy Synthes, a Johnson & Johnson Company. Starting as an associate rep he quickly gained the trust of his hospitals and moved into a full-line sales rep position. He was named Rep of the Year in his first year in the territory, accelerating his medical device career.
Surrounding his passion of being an entrepreneur and building on the relationships he gained while in the hospitals, he started Digital Medical. Matthew saw numerous issues in the medical industry, more importantly, the Operating Room environment. Digital Medical has successfully implemented software into the University of Maryland Medical System and Medstar Health and has built numerous websites and applications.
