VMI Center for Leadership and Ethics' conference project manager Derek Pinkham and conference assistant Emily Coleman sat down last spring with Sean Matson '05, co-founder & CEO of MATBOCK and the co-founder and president of Strike Force Beverage. Matson spent 13 years (2005 - 2018) as a Navy SEAL Officer, with multiple deployments in strategic locations. Matson is currently an entrepreneur. We heard from him spring of 2019 during VMI's Business Leadership and Innovation Conference. He has been instrumental in the success with MATBOCK and Strike Force by leveraging the leadership skills from his time on active duty.
Our Center's mission is to enhance the VMI citizen-soldier journey with programming that educates, engages and inspires critical thinking, ethical decision-making, and leader development.
