Kyle has always loved technology and finding new ways to use it for business success. That’s why he joined Matrix Networks in 2011 as a creative mind who enjoyed a challenge.

In 2017, Kyle was promoted to President of Matrix Networks, where he had the vision and responsibility to shape the future of the company. He decided to focus on delivering cutting-edge solutions that matched the evolving needs of his clients. He also wanted to make sure that Matrix Networks stayed true to its core values of Integrity, Teamwork, Seeking Knowledge, and Having Fun.

In 2020, Kyle made a bold move and bought the company he loved so much. He said it was the best decision he ever made (besides marrying his wife). He also said it was "better than anything else that happened in 2020." (which wasn’t hard).

Kyle is passionate about working with his amazing team at Matrix Networks to help customers get to the cloud safely. He is an expert in UCaaS and Contact Center Solutions, which are complex solutions that need a lot of preparation. Kyle’s daily goal is to build a better business for his clients and employees while having fun along the way.

Hobbies: Kyle enjoys travel, music, golf, and books that make him think. His passion is his family and the community he has built at Matrix Networks. Kyle is a lifelong learner and enjoys exploring new ideas, concepts, and technology.

Matrix Networks History

Founded in 1984, Matrix Networks got its start by supporting and installing key system PBX phone systems. Embracing the power of the Internet and mobile computing, Matrix Networks began specializing in the installation and support of network infrastructure and WIFI for both hospitality and enterprise clients. From key systems to modern cloud communications platforms (Contact Center and Phone System), Matrix Networks has embraced the future and assisted our clients in their effort to stay ahead of the curve. 

At Matrix Networks, we embrace a "network first" strategy. We collaborate with clients across the globe to provide redundant, optimized networks, backed by proprietary connectivity services that separate Matrix Networks from the rest. This ensures our clients remain connected to the critical applications they depend on to do business regardless of location.


Matrix Networks Founder

From 1984 until 2020, David Ness was the sole owner of Matrix Networks and a proud native Oregonian. David began Matrix 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
