Matt Nickens, Senior Partner

Matt joined Coleman Search Group to lead the firm’s emergence into the IT and accounting recruiting space and establish CSG’s presence in the Washington, DC market.

Prior to joining CSG, Matt was a successful Business Development Manager in the Washington Metropolitan area for Experis, the IT Division of the third largest staffing firm in the world. He quickly grew his book of business to more than $2 million in annual recurring revenue, including both federal and commercial clients. In this capacity, Matt was pivotal in strategic planning, negotiation and client communication, supporting a portfolio of small-to-medium sized businesses and Fortune 500 companies on a regional and national level.

Before joining Experis, Matt spent two years at a boutique recruiting firm, NRI, where he handled recruiting and account management responsibilities for their accounting/finance team. He dove head-first into the real estate and construction industries, quickly retaining new business partnerships and expanding existing relationships. 

Matt is a natural collaborator who uses his instinctive abilities to bring parties together, solve problems and deliver outstanding results.

Before joining the recruiting industry, Matt graduated Magna Cum Laude from Towson University and achieved his childhood dream of working for ESPN while embarking on an entrepreneurial venture, Reel Athletics, which connected college coaches to student-athletes. After helping facilitate more than 200 student-athletes sign to play sports at the collegiate level, Matt decided to transfer his people development and problem-solving skills to the professional recruiting and consultation space.
