Meet the minds behind the magnet!
We like to think of Blue Magnet as an extension of your hotel's sales team.
Each of our team members is fully committed to ensuring our clients' complete satisfaction. To that end, we believe that education is the key to understanding the value of our services within the hotel industry. The internet landscape is evolving quickly, which is why everyone at Blue Magnet takes the time to explain to our clients the reasons behind our marketing and development decisions. We will never recommend a product or service simply because it's the latest trend. Your best interest is ours, which is why we will stand by only those suggestions that we feel will help you achieve your end goal. We are savvy internet travelers, voracious technology geeks, hotel industry specialists, information junkies and friendly tour guides through the online marketing jungle.

Matt's internet marketing career began in Bethesda, MD, with an online marketing agency specializing in the hospitality industry. There he executed and integrated everything from content optimization to meta tag development, pay-per-click campaigns to link acquisition strategies for clients such as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels, Destination Hotels & Resorts, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Potomac Hospitality. After several years on the client side, Matt moved his career to the hotel side with Hilton Hotels Corporation. At the Hiltons of Washington DC, Matt managed the hotels' web development, email marketing, pay-per-click implementation, website optimization and content development needs.
