Born and raised in Wisconsin, Matt has led the business side from the onset, including operations and sales. That originally included a major component of EatStreet's early success: signing local restaurants to the service. He has also spearheaded numerous acquisitions for EatStreet, including delivery startup Zoomer in February of 2017. He graduated from UW-Madison in 2011 with degrees in economics and political science. In 2017, Matt and co-founder Alex Wyler were named to Forbes 30 Under 30 in the Consumer Technology category, making them the first Wisconsin tech startup leaders to be recognized by Forbes.
Oversees and sets direction for EatStreet's web and mobile platforms.
Since building the original website with co-founder Eric Martell, Alex's role has continued to increase. He's worn many hats for EatStreet, from customer service, to cashier, to server administrator. He's been tasked with some of the company's biggest challenges, including improving the delivery experience. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011 with a degree in computer science/computer engineering and went on to work at Facebook as a software engineer before re-joining EatStreet in 2014. In 2017, Alex and co-founder Matt Howard were named to Forbes 30 Under 30 in the Consumer Technology category, making them the first Wisconsin tech startup leaders to be recognized by Forbes.
Heightening brand awareness, acquiring and retaining customers, gathering customer insights and setting EatStreet's marketing & communications strategies.
After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a journalism degree, Suz spent the next several years in advertising with Young & Rubicam and Planet Propaganda, working on passion-based brands such as Ford, Target and Jimmy John's. Before joining EatStreet in late 2016, she worked for Duluth Trading Company as a marketing executive, where she grew the company from a catalogue-only marketer to a national retail brand. Her work to rebrand and develop the EatStreet identity has strengthened the brand's mission to be the most fan-focused food ordering brand.
