Matt Collingwood – Managing Director
Matt had a vision to build a company with a people centric approach, aiming to deliver the highest levels of customer service and delivery. VIQU is that vision in reality, offering ‘Smarter People Solutions’. With over 20 years experience in IT recruitment, Matt has placed over 4,000 IT professionals so can channel a wealth of knowledge and experience into the VIQU offering we provide our candidates and clients. Matt is the Co-Chairman (Midlands Region) for The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), which is the UK’s largest recruitment membership body and is the Vice Chairman for a recruitment and skills creation charity called Starting Point Recruitment.

Outside of his role at VIQU, Matt enjoys the great outdoors. As a keen game fisherman, he can often be found by the riverbank with a rod in hand, or shooting clay pigeons in the middle of the countryside. For fitness, Matt enjoys sparring at his local boxing gym and is a Krav Maga Practitioner.
