Matt Oess is Partner

Matt Oess leads TechCXO’s Executive Coaching Practice and also serves our Clients as a Strategy, Sales, and Marketing consultant or interim CRO.

Executive Coaching

Matt is an Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC)-certified Senior Executive Coach. He works with Senior Leadership Teams to create the alignment, collaboration, and communication required for optimal outcomes. He works with very successful, powerful executives who, put simply, don’t believe the status quo is good enough, personally and professionally. To quote a client CEO, “It happens in every company. We were leaving $ millions on the table. Though TechCXO’s program, we finally made massive strides on the mis-alignment and the dysfunctional, siloed behavior that were holding us back.”

Like elite athletes on a quest to be Olympic champions, he works with successful leaders who are looking to constantly progress. Current coaching clients include: A team of eighteen (18) Senior Executives at a $60M rapidly-growing technology company; a team of five (5) Senior Executives at a $300M consumer goods company, ten (10) Senior Executives at a large Berkshire Hathaway portfolio company, the CEO of a $250M+ software company, a top 3 Executive of a $6 Billion industrial manufacturing company, the SVP Sales of IoT SaaS company, and the principal owner of a boutique Consulting Firm.
