Matthew Derella

Chief Executive Officer

Matt believes that when companies start with innate talent and relevant job skills, instead of a resume or a degree requirement, they build more effective workforces and dismantle barriers for their next generation of talent. A dedicated family man, he takes no greater pleasure than being with his wife and kids, feet buried deep in ocean-front sand. And, if you’re hungry, Matt makes top-notch Sunday gravy.

Along with his CEO and board director positions at Catalyte, Matt also serves on the board of MoneyLion, a mobile bank that provides access to capital and financial health for millions of customers. He was Chief Customer Officer for Twitter. After Derella assumed responsibility for all revenue, Twitter underwent a massive business and cultural transformation resulting in its market cap expanding more than 2x in 3 years – from ~$20B in early 2018 to ~$44B in 2021. Prior to Twitter he held several leadership roles at Google. Matt is inducted into the Advertising Hall of Achievement and was named one of the World’s Top 100 Digital Marketers by The Drum.
