Matt Carson

Sr. Sales Dir. / Dir. of Agent Outreach

How did you get here?

I am originally from Kansas City and moved to Columbia to study Marketing and Management at Columbia College in 2011. While in school I stumbled upon SMS at a job fair and, as they say, the rest is history. I started working here as a Marketing Intern in May of 2013, and moved into a full time position when I graduated in December of 2014. I have had a few different roles now leading up to my current position of Marketing Team Leader.

What is your favorite part of working at SMS?

I love working at a company with such a fun and rewarding work environment. I look forward to coming to work every day and enjoying the company of all of the amazing and talented people I am fortunate enough to work with. It is difficult to explain what makes the culture at SMS what it is without actually being a part of it, but is truly an amazing place to be.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I grew up around circle track racing and have a passion for all things related to cars and motorsports. Being from Kansas City, I am also a lifelong Chiefs and Royals fan as well as all things Mizzou. I spend my free time with my amazing fiancé, Sedel, and our Border Collie, Hans. I also like to research and learn about anything that interests me, although usually nothing that is actually productive or useful.

What can you help agents with?

Adding or growing your business in the senior market, marketing and strategy, back office support, and almost anything else you can think of. I am truly just your connection to our team. With all of the combined knowledge in our office, we can answer most questions on the first phone call. If we don’t have the answer, we can typically find one and get back with you shortly. Regardless though, I promise you will always have the full commitment of our team to answer every question and put all of our energy into helping you succeed.

What should your job title be?
