Matrix Networks History

Founded in 1984 by David Ness, Matrix Networks got its start by supporting and installing key system PBX phone systems. Embracing the rise of Internet dependency and BYOD initiatives, Matrix Networks began incorporating the installation and maintenance of WIFI systems for both hospitality and enterprise clients. Offering cloud solutions, including cloud phone systems, became the next natural migration as organizations began to see the benefits of cloud-enabled business technology. However, simply offering cloud solutions is not enough! 

Today, Matrix Networks continues to embrace a "network first" approach to communication partnerships. We collaborate with clients across the globe to provide innovative unified communication solutions supported by optimized networks, and backed by proprietary connectivity services that separate Matrix Networks from the rest.

Matrix Networks Leadership



Matrix Networks Founder

David Ness is the sole owner of Matrix Networks and a proud native Oregonian. David began Matrix in 1984 as a one-man operation working out of his garage in North Portland. Back then, he was known as the “Phone Guy,” his determination to give his customers unparalleled customer service, along with his knack for troubleshooting created a loyal following.

Being a licensed technician himself, David used his experience and industry knowledge to gather a team of talented and dedicated professionals, known today as “Pro-Techs.” These individuals, many of whom are still employed with Matrix today, helped build upon the foundation he created and began to pave the road towards a successful launch in the Portland business community as a reliable communication solution provider.

Matrix Networks was founded on the principles of providing innovative solutions supported by genuine customer care, a principle that has carried on throughout the years, creating a corporate culture that is passionate about fostering the growth of other businesses by being a partner who is reliable, experienced, and professional.

 I believe that if you are honest, treat people well, and do the right thing, you’ll continue successfully in business.

– David C. Ness
