At SME Broker Services, our employees are what make this company such a great place to work. We consider ourselves a tightly-knit family of people of all walks of life, and we wanted to share what makes our employees special with an Employee Showcase feature series on our blog.
For today's Employee Showcase, we will be focusing on our very own pro darts player Matthew Smith, a Broker Executive here at SME Broker Services.

I describe myself to be a very hard-working young man who thrives in getting and reaching goals.
What does your role at SME Broker Services entail?

I heard about the job on Indeed and I found that the hiring process was amazing. Everyone made me feel welcome. Perfect environment to work in.
How has SME Broker Services helped you in your career development?
SME Broker Services has helped me in my career by opening doors I thought would never be opened, I enjoy working here with such a great team, and this has helped me work harder knowing I have got a team willing to help behind me.
What has been your biggest accomplishment in both SME Broker Services and life in general?
My biggest accomplishment so far working for SME Broker Services must be bringing in my first deal, which then generated repeat business. My biggest accomplishment in general must be winning division 2 singles championships in Worcester Darts League and of course beating the best playing in the world Michael Van Gerwen.

If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you take and why?
I would take my darts, a dartboard and my phone. I would take these items because I will still be able to play the sport I love and still be able to watch the matches. #DartsDartsDarts
What are you working on at the moment?
I am currently working on tailoring data sets for my clients. I really enjoy doing this part as it allows me to have a full understanding of what my clients are looking for.
