Matt Reich PEPrincipal | Electrical Engineer
Matt became an Associate at Systems West in 2016 and is the head of the electrical department. His ability to remain cool under the pressure of deadlines is what enables him to excel at managing the design of electrical systems. He has completed projects for Owners of athletic facilities, research and specialty laboratories, K-12 schools, higher education buildings, and historic bridges (his personal favorite).
In addition to electrical design, Matt specializes in designing lighting and controls, taking great pride in making a room light up. He finds great satisfaction in coming up with creative solutions to various design problems.
A native Oregonian, Matt and his wife spend summer weekends either camping in the High Cascades or rafting one of the many rivers in Oregon. In the winter they can be found chasing both the powder and each other around the nearby mountains. When the weather compels him to stay inside, he loves refinishing furniture, woodworking, and tinkering in his garage. If something is broken, Matt can fix it, which is why his wife lovingly calls him Mattgyver.
