AT THTE, all of our employees are home-based, allowing for a greater work-life balance and saving infrastructure costs, which we pass on to you.

Frustrated with trying to find a good quality vendor partner at an affordable cost, the Highly Trained Eye was founded in 2003 by Scott Rowland and Matthew Vardaman.  Since then, THTE has grown to have clients and employees throughout the country. 

Scott Rowland is the CEO and co-founder of The Highly Trained Eye™, where he has served for the past eleven years.  Prior to THTE, Scott has headed up numerous training and Human Resources departments over his 23-year career in the profession, from 10,000+ employee organizations to start-ups, including El Pollo Loco restaurants, American Home Mortgage and Washington Mutual Bank.  Scott’s passion lies in demonstrating the ROI of training, leadership development, executive roundtables and coaching.  

Matthew Vardaman is the President and co-founder of THTE, and has headed up training and sales departments for the past 17 years, serving with recognized sales leaders such as Pitney Bowes, Canon and American Home Mortgage.  Matt’s passion lies in coaching sales/customer service professionals and sales management.  

Currently, THTE has people in Exeter, NH (1 hour north of Boston), Upland, CA and Auburn CA, with plans to grow into Denver and Atlanta.
