Matt Farrell

Project Manager

Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, Matt received his higher education at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he earned a B.S. in software engineering and an M.B.A. with a concentration in Marketing.

Matt worked for Rockwell Automation and Rockwell Software in various software engineering and product marketing roles. During this time, Matt also pursued private business interests and acted as a consultant for designRoom, coming aboard in a more active role in 2001.
Matt is especially valuable as Project Manager, tracking all the components of branding and marketing projects. He helps the branding team from the beginning of a project through to its completion. Additionally, he’s our liaison with IT and Legal, and moonlights as our HR department. Give him a problem. He’ll solve it. Which is useful in his role as a member of the Perry Local Schools Board of Education.

Matt makes it a point to include a little fun in his time in the office… he’s the one that managed to put up the five nerf basketball hoops (4 small and one main court in the great room) around the office. Or maybe it’s because he’s like 6’4″ and likes to dunk.
