Matt has been in the gift card space since 2001, managing programs from the merchant brands' perspective. Starting with the VHS-renting days of Hollywood Video, Matt ran gift card in-store operations, channel marketing, B2B client services, and 3rd party retail development for the Hollywood Video, Game Crazy, and eventually Movie Gallery gift card programs.
Matt then moved to Nike Retail, founding and growing the program that would introduce the Nike mini-shoebox gift card box to the world, and launch programs with Cole Haan, Converse, and Nike international in China, Japan, Mexico, and Western Europe.
While at Nike, Matt completed his MBA and co-founded and served on the executive board of a trade association called the Retail Gift Card Association, which featured an exclusively merchant membership.
Matt left Nike to found Powerhouse Brands, a gift card program management firm for premium and emerging merchants, that helps some of the largest brands in the world launch, develop, and maximize their gift card portfolios.
At the same time that Powerhouse launched, Matt launched the
Gift Card Network
, the largest gift card focused media and collaboration network in the world, serving as its media director and collaborator.
