Matthew Goward – Founder and CEO
Matt has a big vision for small companies. He’ll settle for nothing less than, “changing the way eCommerce is hosted. Everywhere.” And he has the experience and know how to back it up.
Before founding Coeus Blue, Matt helped grow the managed services business at Fry, Inc. Fry, now a part of Micros-Retail, was an eCommerce pioneer, providing web design, development and hosting. While at Fry, the managed services business grew exponentially, with Matt as a major contributor. In roles as senior systems engineer, and lead engineer, Matt worked with clients and development teams to build successful eCommerce solutions for a wide range of clients including Cabela’s and Express.
Design and configuration of hosting environments, load testing for capacity analysis and software QA, authoring environment and process docs, debugging apps, Matt did it all. Platforms? He’s well versed; from Apache to Websphere and everything in between.
It was at Fry where Matt began to think about innovative ways to host eCommerce sites – a model that worked for businesses where a big investment in server hardware was overkill but, commoditized hosting services weren’t enough to sustain the business. While Matt was innovating, cloud computing was evolving; Matt had found his model.
Prior to Fry, Matt was with Siemens/SBS and was responsible for Ford’s extranet operations. He also worked as a network engineer for Msen, Inc. and Delcor Homes.
Matt recognized the potential of eCommerce early on, when he co-founded a web design company in 1998. He hasn’t looked back since.
To bring the right resources to bear on client projects, Matt calls on the experience and talent of a team of eCommerce experts he has worked with for years. Coeus Blue clients get the skilled team they need – but only what they need, for as long as they need. That principle is the core of our business, after all.
