    Matt Brown is an Engineered Wood Specialist at APA – The Engineered Wood Association. He is located in Indiana and serves the greater Chicago area and surrounding region. He works to educate the wood industry on the impacts of energy efficiency and educate the raters, code officials and builders on the advantages of wood construction for energy efficiency and sustainability.

He managed many aspects of the company, from drafting and design to customer walk-through and warranty service. As a member of the Indiana Builders Association’s Code committee, he learned code development and the code development process.
