Matt Wade

Vice President of Client Engagement, H3 Solutions


Matt is an engineer-turned-IT nerd. His career began designing mechanical systems for nuclear reactors for the US Navy. SharePoint 2007 rolled out soon after and he leveraged it to organize design documents, contracts, and drawings dating back decades; for better or worse, a new power user was born. The IT department needed some help, so he led adoption for a few years following, including the user adoption sides of upgrading to SharePoint 2013. Today he consults internationally on Office 365 migration and adoption. He's recently found himself neck deep in AI and bots.
