Overseeing Florida’s SLED market for Pluralsight, Smatt said his previous public-sector experience helps him “know what it means to be a customer” and “how to navigate the procurement process and how decisions are made at a higher level.”

Pluralsight offers organizations various products through its online platform, including courses, labs, certifications, skills assessments and other hands-on learning opportunities to help users understand the latest advancements in software development, IT ops, AI, machine learning, security and other tech.

As a SLED account executive for the company, Smatt said, “I’m looking forward mostly to creating relationships with my customers in my territory and helping them find opportunities to create value using our platforms.”

Before joining Pluralsight, Smatt held various roles with the city of Tallahassee for 17 years, including serving as a human resources administrator, an HR employee management manager, a wellness coordinator and an athletic supervisor.

Having this prior public-sector experience, he said, has provided an advantage in his new role.

“I believe it allows me to connect with the ‘I’ve been there, done that’ mentality. For example, I know what it means to be a customer, how I want to be treated, and how to navigate the procurement process and how decisions are made at a higher level,” he explained.

Moving forward, Smatt shared that he looks forward to getting to know the company’s partners, their strategic objectives and how to support them. Long term, he aims to create real value with the company’s partners and look for opportunities to expand Pluralsight’s brand.

Smatt holds a Bachelor of Science in sports management and a Master of Public Administration degree from Florida International University.
