Name: Matthew ‘Matt’ Cox

Job title: Channel Account Manager 

Previous role: 

Inside Channel Sales Rep at Lenovo LCSC UK&I.

Top achievement from the previous role: 

Transitioning from a first time sales role in a new industry, to managing an account set responsible for £15m in yearly sales within a short space of time.

What key skills do you bring to IPCortex? 

Asides from the sales knowledge and experience that I have garnered I have a good head for data analysis and excel. I use this to optimise where I’m spending my time.

Best characteristic? 

Couldn’t possibly say.

What has been the best thing about IPCortex so far? 

The people. Everyone’s been wonderful so far and I’m happy to be working here.

What do you hope to achieve in year 1? 

About £200k in NIBR.

What message would you like to share with partners? 

We’re here to help you!

Favourite memory over the last 5 years? 

Drinking at a hotel in Sardinia with my partner before the pandemic. It is the most recent vacation I took out of the country, and it was 2019!

If you had a superpower what would it be? 

Superspeed, so I would have a chance against the teenagers I now play video games against.

If you were an Avenger which one would you be?

Iron Man, purely for the Billions.

Favourite sports team?

Reading FC, though they’re severely testing that this season!

Favourite sports team memory? 

Reading being promoted to the Premiership for the first time in their history after a Championship run that broke several records and was hands down the best they’d ever played. It was my second season with a ticket and ruined me for all future football seasons (they will never compare!)

Favourite movie and why? 

Bruce Almighty – I saw this film with my dad when I was 11/12 and it managed to hit the sweet spot right in the middle of our sense of humours. We spent the whole 2 hours laughing to tears and I’ll always like the film for giving me those memories.
