Prior to joining Gecko Hospitality, Matthew Knol worked as an executive director at the Solana Doylestown, a brand new premier senior living community. He was the first person hired for the start-up community, still in the construction phase. Matt was involved with the development including pre-sales, public relations, design, and construction. He received all the PA state licenses including his senior living administrator license. When the building was ready to open he interviewed hundreds of applicants and hired a staff of sixty-five including department heads as well as line level staff.

Matt received his BS in hospitality management from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. Since then he has had extensive experience in the hospitality field. He held many hotel positions including general manager, project manager, assistant general manager, revenue manager, and executive housekeeper in various styles of properties including full service, limited service, and extended stay. In addition, Matt worked as the general manger of a Boutique style hotel at Peddler’s Village, a resort tourist attraction in Bucks County, PA, eventually becoming their vice president of sales.

Matt is looking forward to bringing all of his experience to help managers find the perfect opportunity to further their career. He will assist clients in the hotel and senior living industries find the best candidates to grow their businesses. Matt is very excited to start this new career.
