As the holidays approach, the MP team is gearing up for a season filled with festive celebrations and gatherings. As we celebrate time well spent with those we love, both past and present, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank the people, ideas and blessings that have helped make MP and our employees what we are. We are so fortunate to work with an amazing team in an industry that we love.


Friends. To all of the clients and employees who have become our dear friends, and all of our friends who are willing to listen to our unconventional pet industry stories, we salute you! DT

Talented employees. We are so grateful to work with the brightest employees that always put their best foot forward and happily support our clients each and every day. KB

Amazing clients. Matrix Partners has had the great opportunity to work with some of the most enjoyable and intelligent clients in the pet industry. We are proud to say that our client relationships evolve into not only successful partnerships, but also great friendships. BT

Laughter. It’s great working in an environment where we are able to laugh at ourselves and have the ability to not take ourselves too seriously. DA

The pet industry. There is no industry like the pet industry and I am grateful to be a part of such a fun and passionate community. And of course, I am thankful for my morning calls with DT, every single day. JZ

Creativity. I am thankful to work with such a dynamic and winning team. Unlike our beloved Chicago Cubs, but, there’s always next year. GW

Lint brushes. I love getting to have furry desk buddies at the office, but am also grateful for lint brushes before my commute home. MY

Sweet home Chicago. Location. Location. Location. I mean, who doesn’t love Chicago winters? LW

Work ethic. At MP, you will always find helpful hands and good work ethic. Everyone chips in and helps until the work is done. And, let’s not forget my never-ending gratitude for Starbucks. AG

Food. Love MP for offering company lunches on birthdays, good days, bad days, and for just about any day. LZ

Health. We are thankful that we are able to support nonprofits like the American Cancer Society, Payne in the ALS and March of Dimes, which all have impacted our MP family. SK

Drive. I’m thankful at MP we get to help so many amazing companies meet their goals and succeed. CG

Pet videos. I am thankful that looking at cute cat and dog videos and top 10 snuggliest dog countdowns is actually part of my job! KK

Our pets. Let’s face it, they are the reason we are here. Whether we have our own, enjoy their company at the office, or just have a thing for watching cat videos, they are what we are truly passionate about. We are thankful for their loyalty and enduring love.


We hope that this inspires you to take a moment and remember what you’re thankful for this holiday season. And for all of you reading this, we are very thankful for you!


Cheers, MP
