Matt Harris | Chief Executive Officer

As Texada’s CEO, Matt is excited to build and work with a brilliant organization of passionate people looking to create, service, and support the world’s best SaaS software platform for equipment dealerships and rental houses. Matt’s passion is derived from his earnest drive to make a difference in the equipment industry both at a macro-scale and with each individual user of Texada’s software. For Matt, industry transformation starts with making things easier and faster for each and every user which often involves breaking through existing business silos.

Prior to joining Texada, Matt spent 12 years with Viewpoint Construction Software, where as President, he led this 1,000 person global business through its own extraordinary growth and transformation. Under his leadership, Viewpoint dramatically expanded its SaaS platform offering to incorporate solutions for all elements of the construction business including back-office financials, project management, job site controls, human capital management, and data & analytics.
