Senior Management Team

Matthew Edwards, Founder, Managing Director.

Matthew is an ex-British Army combat medic who was selected for early commissioning before a serious back injury forced him into medical discharge.

On leaving the forces, Matthew began a new career in wealth management, rapidly building up his own business. Working with ex-service personnel in that industry helped him understand just how service leavers could apply their talent outside of the forces.

Shortly after completing a Masters Degree Banking and International Finance at CASS Business School in London, Matthew moved into recruitment running a national wealth management desk. 

The idea for a specialist ex-forces recruitment agency came about when talking with former Army colleagues. Matthew and colleague Charlie then went about researching the market to see how the experience for service leavers could be improved. During this research it became evident that adopting the Social Enterprise model was the most appropriate way to align Triforce with the candidates. A bold step as Triforce is the first Social Enterprise in this sector.
