Matt Verhalen

Chief Executive Officer

Matt and his brother Brian started The Seat Shop back in 2006, and he has lead the direction and growth strategy of the company since the beginning. His strong leadership ability keeps the team moving towards the same goal, enabling the company to grow exponentially over the past 15 years.

Matt is married to Jill, the company’s COO, and they have two children. He loves watching the Rangers and Cowboys. Matt loves all types of music and enjoys playing guitar with his friends from time to time. He is a tech geek at heart, and loves learning about the latest gadget or software that hits the market.  Most of all, he loves spending time with his family (including their dog Biscuit), and is very excited about what lies ahead.
