Matt Springer is the Branch Sales Manager at Premier’s Colorado Springs branch. Joining Premier in 2012 Matt helped to open our Fort Collins Branch as a Field Supervisor before being promoted to his current position in Colorado Springs. He enjoys working for Premier because he’s able to constantly assess and solve problems and welcomes new challenges every day. Having worked in a sales management role for over 15 years he believes sales is a combination of influence, persuasion, and problem-solving. According to Matt, the most rewarding thing about being a Sales Manager is “helping to develop the talent of my team and see others grow and accomplish their goals both personally and professionally.”
Before Premier, Matt was a store manager in action-sports retail working at different times in a ski shop, bike shop, surf shop, and an outdoor retailer. He has also worked as a ski instructor in Aspen, CO and enjoyed being a youth hockey coach. Originally from Rhode Island, Matt studied Business Management at the University of Rhode Island and was a collegiate athlete competing in both lacrosse and hockey.
Outside of Premier, his primary focus is on his young family, Matt and his wife have two children together – and when time permits Matt likes to BBQ, play hockey, ski, and mountain bike.
