Known for his straight talking, no-nonsense approach, mobile industry visionary, Matthew Winters, has a rich history and formidable reputation in the mobile space, having worked at the forefront of the industry for 15 years. Matthew then founded Veoo, the UK’s leading mobile consultancy, renowned for bringing added value solutions to market, in 2011 in a bid to create a holistic ‘one stop shop’ for businesses in need of various mobile solutions.
Having started his career in mobile content, before moving on to the management of online storefronts for marquee organisations such as Microsoft, MSN, Wanadoo and AOL. Matthew has since achieved rapid growth at Veoo, building the organisation from a standing start to a business boasting over 150 customers and with a turnover that has tripled in size in the last year.
In a highly competitive marketplace, Matthew has driven Veoo to become a global player, differentiating the company from the majority of its competitors with its worldwide footprint. In fact, as well as establishing offices in the UK, Matthew has also set Veoo up in Ireland, Cyprus, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Russia and Hungary, and he is planning to open offices in the US, Philippines, Singapore and Canada this year.
Matthew’s extensive knowledge and renowned reputation also span into the payments sector and have resulted in him being headhunted to appear as a chairperson and moderator at a number of high profile industry summits, conventions and forums, such as The European Summit, where he recently chaired the Payment Panel in 2016.
A man with great charm combined with an inherent ability to always find the commercial opportunity for all parties, Mathews is constantly on the lookout for the ‘next big thing’ in mobile. To this end, Matthew’s latest brainchild is Veoo’s game-changing Mobile Wallet solution. Guaranteed to disrupt the mobile payments industry, the solution enables customers to create mobile vouchers, offers, loyalty cards and event invitations that are stored in their mobile phone. The Mobile Wallet will also reshape the way brands interact with their customers, allowing notifications to be sent to anyone who has downloaded a voucher/ticket when they come within 100m of an applicable store, as well as facilitating push notifications, which can be sent directly to customers at their discretion.
Father of two, Matthew has recently become a fitness fanatic, so when he is not speaking or facilitating panels at industry events, or driving the business in new directions, he can be found working out in the gym.
