In just 3 short years, Matt Connell has rocketed through the ranks of HK Projects from CAD assistant in 2012 to head of the company’s creative team — one of the most senior positions in a company that takes enormous pride in its creative design skills. All achieved by his 25th birthday.
Matt’s talent has been at the crux of a strategic change of gears for HK Projects as he rolls together responsibilities of project management, salesman and designer. “This modernisation of traditional team boundaries has been a pleasure to watch and speaks volumes about his desire to improve our client experiences. The ability to meet with clients, innovatively explore their concept and pitch a design, then project manage and deliver the project, provides the client with a single source of contact from day one to handover,” HK Projects says.
Matt’s method is not only benefiting HK Projects; it is a template for the future of the industry. “We believe Matt is at the forefront of the next generation of our industry. He’s passionate about our end-users and the responsibility the supplier has to add value throughout the project process. Looking after national multiple-operator accounts alongside large bespoke projects, he must be one of the youngest senior members of the industry,” the company enthuses.
