Matthew Burzon, Founder, Staffing and Training Leader

Overview:

Matt founded Talon in January 2016 on the belief that traditional agency staffing models are antiquated, in-house recruitment resources are often overloaded or undertrained, and that on-demand RPO’s present a more attractive, professional, and cost-effective way to acquire the talent required for organizations to stay competitive and remain cutting edge. 

Experience:

Prior to establishing Talon, Matthew was the Director of Client Services for Titus Talent Strategies where he was ranked 2nd in performance amongst 40+ recruiters. In addition to recruitment, Matt was tasked with growing four regional offices (Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Boston, and Burlington, Vermont). Talon’s core philosophy and many of our key differentiators were developed as a result of the various successes and failures during the Titus Talent Strategies years.

Prior to Titus Talent Strategies, Matt held roles in commercial construction management spanning project management, sustainable building design and construction, energy management, marketing and business development.

Education:

•Holderness, Plymouth, NH

•Milwaukee School of Engineering

•B.S. Construction Management

•M.S. Business and Construction Management (partial)

Background:

In October 2017, Matt relocated on assignment to Salt Lake City to open Talon’s second office location. SLC was one of four possible expansion locations, and was ultimately selected due to generous support of Dealer.com’s co-founder, Ryan Dunn. Beyond recruitment, Matt enjoys sailing, skiing, mountain biking, playing guitar, and restoring vintage Land Rovers.
