Matthew W

Bringing together a strong background in analysis, strategy and planning with recent academic research in International Relations, Matt combines a detailed understanding of the macro-environment with specific tools, techniques and insights to enable long-term decision-making in the defence sector.

Matt has a decade of experience working in the defence industry, including in the commercial, strategy and planning, and business development functions, with particular emphasis on market and competitor analysis, strategy development, and business planning. The outputs of these have been used to support senior leaders, campaign teams and investment decisions. He also completed a secondment into the Department for International Trade prior to undertaking academic research on modern air power.

Outside of work, Matt is a dedicated fan of Formula 1 and enjoys travel, combining the two where he can. He is also an avid reader, and loves exploring second-hand bookshops to find books on geopolitics, dystopian fiction and aviation.
