Matt Spry

Founder & Director

I left the corporate world to found Emergent and work with organisations whose mission and values I believe in, and to use my skills, experience and energy to help them succeed.

In particular I am interested in how new and innovative business models can be used to disrupt the status quo and achieve a material or step-change improvement - whether in service delivery excellence, price, sustainability or social impact. 

Previously I worked in a variety of commercial roles - most recently at MITIE where I was the commercial lead on major outsourcing tenders. During this I worked in teams that won well in excess of £1bn of new business.  At the start of my career I qualified as a Chartered Accountant whilst working at Arthur Andersen. 

I am a Business Advisor for the Creative Industry Finance scheme,  Social Investment Business, Virgin Startup and Seedbed Enterprise programmes.

You can follow me on twitter, read about my career on LinkedIn, laugh at how slow I ride on Strava, and be appalled by my taste in music on Spotify
