Matt Kohly


Congratulations to Matt Kohly, Director of Government and Carrier Relations, on being named Socket's You-Make-The-Difference Award Winner for August!

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.

"I don't think most people realize how much stuff he's into," said a cowoker who nominated him for the award. "He just sits there all nice and quiet, diligently working away. He gets to straighten out all the messes no one else knows how to fix."

Originally from Lexington, MO, Matt enjoys woodworking and kayaking in his spare time - in fact, he's kayaked across the entire state of Missouri! He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Sherri, and his kids, Matthew and Kara.

"I really appreciate being recognized," said Matt. "It means a lot coming from my peers." 

Congratulations, Matt!
