Mat Berube – CEO & Co-founder
Mat Berube is CEO and a Co-Founder of LEADWAVE® Technologies Inc. Alongside Aaron Weir, they have grown the company from two computer geeks in the basement into an award-winning world-class MSP employing over a dozen people and supporting over 1600 users.
As a teenager Mat attended L’Ecole Secondaire Saint-Francois-Xavier in Sarnia, Ontario where he developed his interest in computers, further expanding on the knowledge he acquired while teaching himself the BASIC computer programming language around age 12. At 17, Mat registered his first company offering freelance software design and development, web design services, and custom computer builds. After expanding his knowledge in computer networking technologies he started Simply Networking Solutions and opened his first office. A couple of years in business attracted the attention of a nation-wide computer services company who offered him a place on their team where he met his current business partner and LEADWAVE® co-founder Aaron Weir. In 2006, Mat and Aaron decided to branch out on their own with a focus on bringing big business technology to small and medium businesses in Sarnia and surrounding areas. The rest is history.
In his personal time Mat enjoys spending time in the outdoors, camping with his wife Jaclyn and French Bulldog Kylo as well as trying to fit in as many hiking miles as possible in a weekend while finding ways to continue to grow LEADWAVE® and keep it at the forefront of the Technology Services WAVE.
