Oxford Solutions’ President is a born leader who has never ceased to be laser-focused, determined and driven. As a lifelong Pittsburgh native, Matt graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with degrees in Business, Economics and Psychology. In his first professional job he discovered recruiting. He thrived on helping people achieve their career goals, solving recruitment challenges, closing deals and affecting people’s lives in a positive way. He channeled that same drive and passion to start his own company in 1998. In the early days it was Matt and a small team, looking up companies in a phone book and keeping hard copy resumes in a 2-drawer filing cabinet. Since then, he has built a recruiting hub in the North Hills of Pittsburgh servicing not only well-respected companies in the Pittsburgh market, but also Fortune 500 companies nationwide.
Sara joined the Oxford team in 2019. In her function as Recruiting Manager, she brings over 25 years of management experience including a background in training, client relations, recruiting and sales and is skilled at overseeing large teams. She is a passionate motivator who strives to nurture competitiveness and drive in order to exceed goals and expectations. She is personally committed to helping others achieve their career goals through her training and leadership. She calls Pittsburgh home after relocating from Indiana and lives in the North Hills with her husband, 3 children and brood of pets including 2 active Border Collies.
