Matt McGowan has had a multifaceted career with many accomplishments as an entrepreneur and leader in the tech world.
He started his career out of university working in financial services on Wall Street at Charles Schwab. He decided the traditional financial services industry was not for him and made the decision to leave the company and join a Silicon Valley startup, Headland Digital Media.
The startup was eventually sold to Pearson, after which Matt did his MBA at University of Oxford and then moved into leadership roles in the startup world including becoming COO at PropertyRoom.com, an online auctioning platform, and and Managing Director at Incisive Media, a business media company.
After his successes there, he jumped into the world of big tech becoming the head of ad strategy at Google, working in New York on the strategy and operations of their business.
Matt then became president of Adestra, a marketing technology company, where he led the sale of the company to Upland Software in 2018 for $60M.
Now, he is in his position as Director and General Manager for Snap Inc., where he is leading their growth in Canada.
