This month, Virginia Relay will be saying a bittersweet goodbye to AT&T Channel Manager Matt Myrick. After almost nine years with Virginia Relay, Matt has accepted a well-deserved promotion to become an Accessibility Solutions Engineer for AT&T. In his new position, he will be inspecting all of AT&T’s new products and services to help ensure they are compliant with FCC standards before they are released to the public.
Matt will continue to live in the area in his new job, and he is excited for the new perspective and opportunities his new position will offer. But he will miss getting to travel and meet Relay users across Virginia. During his time with Virginia Relay, Matt has seen the program grow stronger, thanks to the dedication of its outreach team.
“The programs we’ve launched over the years would not have been successful without the support of our contract outreach managers,” he said. “Virginia Relay is considered a model for a lot of other states, because it has some of the best staff and CAs in the country.”
Matt says his favorite part of working with Virginia Relay has been the people he’s met along the way.
“I’m so grateful to have worked with great people like Clayton Bowen, Ron Lanier, and everyone at VDDHH,” he said. “Working with them has been a real pleasure and has made me grow in a professional way. I’ve really enjoyed working with them over the years, and I want to say thank you for all of the support they’ve given me over the years, and thank you especially to Clayton Bowen.”
Join us in thanking Matt for the great service he has provided to the Virginia Relay program, and wishing him all the best in his next endeavor. Congratulations, Matt!
