Matt founded Travel Trade Consultancy in 2005 to help travel businesses navigate the complex regulatory landscape. He remains joint owner and director.
Before starting TTC Matt spent 15 years in the ATOL department of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), where he held various positions, including new applications, licencing and crisis management. His years of regulatory experience come in handy when negotiating with the regulators or helping owners and investors buy and sell travel businesses. Matt works with a range of travel companies, from early-stage start-ups to large, well-established tour operators and he loves finding innovative solutions to complicated problems.
Matt’s main passion is travelling, and he loves nothing more than immersing himself in the country’s culture and experiencing the area like a local. When he isn’t travelling to New York or Las Vegas, Matt enjoys urban walks around London. He is also a life-long Crystal Palace fan and still lives close to the stadium, so likes to catch a home game when he can.
