Bio

Matt Drake

As a former golf professional, Matt’s experience on the golf course got him interested in the green industry. When he was not tearing up the course (figuratively speaking), he was putt-ing (pun intended) it back together as a golf course assistant superintendent. Matt originally joined our Grounds and Landscape Service’s irrigation team, keeping the campus green and beautiful while supporting water conservation best practices. Then, in November 2018, Matt was promoted to a supervisor position where he now runs the maintenance contract for the landscapes surrounding our many student housing projects while also leading our skilled team of laborers.
