“It has been an honor of a lifetime to lead Matrix Integration and work in an industry I love,” said Brenda Stallings. “Nathan is the right leader to continue the important work of building an information technology company that serves with, for and through people. Nathan knows this work, and I am confident he will take Matrix Integration and information technology to the next level.”

COO Dan Fritch, who merged his company with Brenda’s to form Matrix Integration, is enthusiastic about the future of the company under Nathan’s leadership.

“Nathan’s proven leadership and dedication to not only Matrix Integration but the information technology industry overall makes him the ideal choice to carry on this work,” said Fritch. “As we look to the future, we are confident that Nathan’s expertise will build upon the high value Matrix has created and will continue that trajectory.”

 

Plans for Growth

Nathan, who has served in leadership roles at Matrix for nearly 20 years, has plans to evolve the company, which has distinguished itself with a strong partnership approach to IT services that has always focused on customer outcomes and business growth.

Nathan is focused on putting people back into IT through an exceptional client experience. “Our purpose is to humanize IT. IT conjures up images of technology and servers. But it’s really about people – the people who are impacted by IT, the people who run networks and the people they trust to help them do it. The closer we stay to the notion that we’re here for human relationships, the better the end result can be.”

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the CEO of Matrix Integration. I look forward to working closely with the dedicated Matrix team, our customers, business partners and community leaders to further our mission of helping people succeed and improving their lives.” Stallings said. “Anyone who knows Brenda knows she has boundless energy and ideas for a better tomorrow. Brenda has set a high standard, and I am committed to building on her legacy.”
