Introducing Matt Bailey-Ross.png

Matt Bailey-Ross, Bid Executive

What’s your background?
I am from South Carolina in the States and first came to the UK (Birmingham) in 2016 for my Masters. Since then, I've lived in Australia for a year, bounced back and forth between the UK and the States, getting married along the way, and have been back here permanently since early 2019. Professionally, my background is in bids and proposals, primarily within the International Development sector.

Describe your role at Difrent.
As part of the Growth team, I work on Difrent's bids and proposals.

Who are you outside of Difrent?
Outside of Difrent, I am a proud cat dad and a lover of craft beer, wine and anything outdoors-y.

Who would you invite to dinner, dead or alive?
Ian McKellen, 'cause who doesn't want to have dinner with Gandalf!
