Introducing Matt Oliver.png

Matt Oliver, Senior Operations Administrator

What’s your background?
Largely in facilities management & back-office operations roles.

Describe your role at Difrent.
Senior Operations Administrator - a central back-office role that involves making sure every staff member and contractor have the basics to ensure they can do their job, and generally making sure everything runs as smoothly in the background as possible.

The less you hear from me, the better!

Who are you outside of Difrent?
Somewhere between couch potato and moderately active. I enjoy gaming, cinema and reading but I also love hiking and am super passionate about travel (pre-Corona luxury). It's a life goal to visit as many countries as I can.

Who would you invite to dinner, dead or alive?
It would probably be a bit of an author-fest. I'd have to invite George R.R. Martin and be THAT guy that asks him when he's going to hurry up and finish the Game of Thrones Books. Also, Ian Fleming, JRR Tolkien & Stan Lee so I could spend hours picking their brains about their work.
