Matt Crawford, CEO of Neurella Labs, has spent the past 15 years working in the OOH advertising sales and marketing industry. He has worked for top media firms OUTFRONT Media and Intersection (formerly Titan Outdoor). His prime achievements were in business development and operations management. During his tenure at Titan Outdoor he won industry awards in 2006 “Breakout Player of the Year” and was credited in 2008 with creating a business unit for production and inventory development. The business unit he ran for 7 years quickly became the fastest growing and profitable within the company. Subsequently, Matt embarked on fulfilling his dream, setting off to create a business of his own. Thus was born the consulting firm Sasta Business Solutions, initially to manage Neurella Labs but rapidly spinning off multiple other ventures, attracting numerous clients.
When personal tragedy struck with his mother’s shocking diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer and his mother-in-law struggling with ‘untreatable’ dementia, Matt turned his focus, dedication and skills to helping others. He joined forces with one of the brain experts involved with dementia research and built a team of medical experts who applied their collective clinical wisdom to formulate the first product. Neurella daily supplement that contain 12 multifunctional nutritional supplements (often called nutraceuticals or nootropics) designed to give your brain everything it needs to perform at its best and to naturally reduce risks associated with brain-related ailments like Alzheimer’s, Brain Trauma and Stroke.
With the Neurella Labs team in place, Matt has guided Neurella Labs through its inception and launch towards a multimillion dollar company dedicated to a wide range of products. The team will target sectors ranging from improving mind-body wellness through innovative supplements to address unmet needs and support healthy ageing, to functional nutrition and cutting-edge, technologically-interfaced personal care modalities.
On top of being a very active CEO, Matt is a father of two young boys and loving husband to his wife Cathy. He also co-produces Jim Karol’s podcast Purely Mental.
