Vice President of Purchasing, Product Marketing and Technical Support

Director of Information Technology
Matt Smith has been a part of Jameco since 2007 with the mission of building company efficiency with the application of infomation technology through all aspects of the company. From the phone system that takes your orders, to the systems that generate them and send them out the door.
Matt and his team are constantly working on implementing ongoing company projects including evolving the Jameco website to ensure ease of use, depth of product content all backed by ultimate security. Matt has the ability to both see the big picture and manage the details, but unfortunately, he doesn't like to smile in photographs.
Matt graduated from Oberlin College. He has over 25 years of experience managing commerce systems and when he isn't working, he enjoys reading and growing Chile peppers – the super spicy variety.
Matt is proud of the company values that Jameco upholds. He says, "It's a fair business that treats employees, suppliers and customers with the utmost respect."
