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 close to a 20 year career in the UK IT recruitment market, 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.

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.
