Matt’s career in telecoms began straight out of university in the 1990’s when he was recruited by Pentland Gallifordtry as an acquisition surveyor, acquiring mobile phone mast sites for all the main UK operators. He then moved to Airwave (O2 UK Limited) where he held the position as senior asset manager and also the national site share manager.
After 7 years negotiating on behalf of the operators in a senior position, Matt left working for the operators and started to provide advice solely to landlords. He saw the vast majority of Land and property owners were hugely unrepresented and needed specialist advice on rental levels and contractual terms for phone mast agreements.
He co-founded The Phone Mast Company in 2009 and has since been at the forefront of telecoms negotiations, managing a specialist team of surveyors. He has written articles on the UK telecoms market some of which have been published on the UK government website.
In his spare time, Matt enjoys Crossfit and spending time in his motorhome with his children.
