Senior Account Executive
Matt Wilson joins Singer Associates as a Senior Account Executive.
Matt Wilson joins Singer Associates after spending 10 years working as an award winning newspaper reporter with the Bay Area News Group. Mr. Wilson reported on West Valley cities in Santa Clara County and later edited and produced weekly newspapers in Cupertino, Sunnyvale and Campbell. During his reporting days, he wrote about “a little bit of everything,” but he specialized in city government, development and education in Cupertino.
Mr. Wilson was known in his coverage areas for his commitment to accurate and objective reporting. His education writing earned him three awards from the California Teachers Association. He also took home second place in the Breaking News category in the CNPA Better Newspaper Contest in 2011. He left Bay Area News Group toward the end of 2017 to join the San Mateo County Transit District’s public affairs team.
A proud, longtime resident of downtown San Jose, he can often be found there catching up with his many friends, colleagues, sports teammates and loved ones over coffee and meals. Mr. Wilson organizes a 600-member slow pitch softball group and hosts weekly pickup games on Sundays. He has also played ice and inline hockey off and on for more than 20 years and has been a San Jose Sharks fan since their first game at the Cow Palace.
