Matt joined Socket's team over 13 years ago, and is the go-to authority on contracts, legalese, and third-party vendors. Whether it's setting up new colocations and fiber builds, or working out disagreements with Centurylink and AT&T, Kohly is responsible for making it happen.


Socket was proud to be this year's presenting sponsor at the annual Countdown to Kickoff event, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Missouri.

Held in the Columns Club of Memorial Stadium, this night of live and silent auctions helps to raise funds supporting over 500 local youth yearly. This year's event raised over $100,000!


As a part of our business field technician team, Jimmie handles dispatches and on-site troubleshooting for many of our business clients. He’s the face of Socket for new customers being installed for the first time, and is on the front lines when something needs to be fixed.

Jimmie is a Columbia native, a Hickman High School graduate, and holds an associate’s degree in culinary arts. This is his second time winning this award – he was also our honoree in April 2016, and has just celebrated his third anniversary here. Not a bad record!
