TwoSix Digital is happy to welcome 10-year tourism industry veteran, Brian V. Matson to the team as their Senior Director of Strategy & Education.
Brian has been a part of the travel and tourism industry since 2003 where he started as a front line visitor service representative with the Fargo-Moorhead CVB. From 2005 to 2012 Brian served as the Marketing Director in Fargo where he launched “The Woodchipper in Fargo” campaign that was the Recipient of the 2011 Explore MN Travel Marketing Excellence Award and the 2011 North Dakota Governor’s Wade Westin Award for Tourism Marketing. In 2012 he left the DMO side of the industry and joined the agency side to expand his experience and skills. Since that time Brian has become a well-recognized speaker and educator at state, regional and national conferences and is known for his entertaining presentation style that makes his talking points stick with attendees.

In his spare time Brian enjoys keeping his finger on the pulse of the latest technological advancements, social media trends, Jeep Wranglers, MMO video games and developing the art of storytelling through multimedia. He’s a self described “news junkie” and is never far behind the latest news of the day. He currently lives in Brighton, MI with his wife, Kate and their cat Murphy.
