Founder / CEO of Groupmatics
After a nearly decade-long career with two professional sports teams, Matt Mastrangelo launched Groupmatics with an approach that blends an inside group sales perspective with a true love of sporting events. Working in the group sales department, Matt recognized the amount of work, responsibility, and hassle that was placed on both the Group Sales Rep and a Group Leader to manage a group outing. He also saw the inefficiencies of the group sales process and realized that teams were losing opportunities for return revenue due to poor process experiences of the buyers. Matt started his career in the ticket sales department with the Cleveland Indians in 2005. In 2006 he was promoted to the role of Group Sales Account Executive, where he worked very closely with non-profit organizations, youth baseball leagues, churches, unions, and corporations to organize group outings ranging from 25 to 5,000+ people. Matt became Group Sales Manager for the Cleveland Browns in 2010. After only two years with the Browns, Matt and his staff grew the group ticket business by a whopping 800%. The NFL recently honored the Cleveland Browns Group Sales department as a best practice for this accomplishment. Matt received his Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communications from Cleveland State University. He currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio with his beautiful wife Nicole, son Anthony and daughter CeCe. He hopes Groupmatics puts the fun back in group ticketing processes for teams and groups across America.
