When I heard that Stewart’s Director of Technology, Matt Price, was celebrating 20 years with the company, I knew he’d have some great stories of his time here. He was kind enough not to tell me about the thousands of laughs he must have had over the years from users like me and our interactions with technology.
Joining the company in October of 1996, Matt came on as employee number 12. Now he oversees a team of IT professionals that keep a company of 185 people moving with state-of-the-art technology.
He’s come a long way from the days of employees with AOL email accounts and a company with no website. In the days before email servers, one of Matt’s early duties was effectively acting as a switchboard operator, receiving all incoming emails and sending them on to the right people. Thank goodness, he knew a better way!
Matt studied architecture and engineering before deciding on Information Technology, and he has used his skills of creativity and ingenuity to configure the 19 different offices Stewart has occupied as the company grew and outgrew several locations.
Thank you, Matt, for 20 years of keeping us up to date on software, hardware, and the ever-changing world of technology, without even once letting on that the root of our computer issue was located between the computer and the chair.
