Matthew Cossens is an energetic Sales leader with over 15+ years of experience working with both large and boutique recruitment firms.
His success to date is due to his ability to lead from the front and engage, influence, and coach a team towards a shared vision and goals, through a collaborative approach and open communication style.
This has helped Matt build award-winning Recruitment Companies and have personal achievements including Seek SARA (Finalist) Recruitment Leader of the Year and winning Recruitment International’s Recruiter of the Year.
He joined Technology People in 2022 as the Chief Executive Officer to work with an amazing group of people and to drive the next stage of growth for our individual team members, business, and ultimately the clients we support.
He believes in the power of relationships, the value of becoming an expert in your field, and that mindset, motivation and execution are the keys to success.

Icebreaker – Matt has high expectations in all areas of his life, he is goal-driven and loves to push outside his comfort zone.
