With a strong focus on relationship management, Matt provides support and direction to the partner organisations that have Relay For Life programs and are situated in Europe and the Middle East. It is also his responsibility to bring more partners into the program. He facilitates training, idea sharing and networking across the region in order to promote best practices and to seek joint opportunities to further the work of all organisations in the fight against cancer.
Matt first got an appetite for Relay whilst travelling in Australia, where he worked with several Relay events. Whilst in Australia, Matt met his now wife and moved to her native Ireland. Keen to rekindle his work with Relay, he became the director of the Irish Cancer Society before taking on his role at the American Cancer Society.
