Director of Sales
Matt joined the Brix team in 1997 and has been with the restaurant ever since. He has held many positions in his 22 years with us including Dining Room Manager, General Manager and since 2008 Special Events Manager. Matt grew up in Eureka with his first job in the industry being at the Red Lion Inn. He eventually worked his way up to Management of their fine dining restaurant where he was responsible for the wine list and management of a 180-room hotel and the challenges it presented. In 1990, he joined the food and beverage team at the Eureka Inn which is known for its food and wine program, and had the opportunity to work the area’s best. The time Matt spent at the Eureka Inn was incredibly educational and he credits the very talented individuals he worked with there for helping fuel the passion for food, wine and special events he has today. Matt has held the position of our Special Events Manager since 2008 and he is a wealth of information for all things Napa Valley so consider him your own personal resource.
In his time away from Brix Matt enjoys fishing for the “illusive” sturgeon on the Napa River, golfing at the wonderful local courses, attending local activities, gardening at his home in Napa or playing “tour guide” to visiting family and friends. He truly takes pleasure in showing off Napa’s superb wineries, restaurants and all of the wonderful things that make Napa such a great place to work and live.
