Matt and his Co-Founder Pete first got into business installing window locks in NSW. After identifying a change in NSW Government legislation, Pete & Matt applied their skills from the Australian Defence Force to their first venture, Secure Windows.
Matt served ten years with the Australian Army before discharging in September 2017 to work full-time on Secure Windows. During his time with the ADF, Matt built expertise in logistics, capability management, distribution, and project management – all skills he uses in business.
Although a steep learning curve, Matt credits his skills with the ADF as integral to helping him identify and respond quickly to challenges.
