Interview with Mat Holtman

How long have you worked for Silver Star?

4 years

What does your job entail?

I’m responsible for the electrical needs of Silver Star Communications, as well as learning the CO (Central Office) side of things.  I do quite a bit of work installing equipment in our CO’s remote cabinets and DLCs (Digital Loop Carrier).  I get a fairly wide range of tasks, which I really enjoy.

What do you love most about your job?

There are quite a few things I love about my job.  I love that I get to travel and see all ends of our infra-structure.  I also get a wide variety of tasks, so it doesn’t get monotonous.  I also really enjoy the people that I work with in the OPS department.

What do you love most about the community you live in?

I love the fact that I have the outdoors right in my back yard!  I love hearing the elk, in the fall, from my bedroom window.  I love jumping on a sled or an ATV and being in the forest in 4 minutes or less.  I’ve also got great neighbors!!

What is something unique about you? 

Not much.  There’s really not much to me.  What you see is pretty much what you get.  I try not to stick out too much. 

What’s your favorite hobby? 

Antler hunting

Fast Five – 5 questions fast!

What is your favorite springtime activity?

Antler hunting!!

If you could teleport, where would you go?


What is one item you could NEVER live without?

Probably my pick-up!!  (Not necessarily mine, but “a pick-up” in general!!)

Who is the best super hero?

Not much of a superhero guy, but let’s say “Thor”.

Favorite snack food?

Peanuts and Pepsi!!  (Yes, they are mixed together……No, it’s not disgusting!!)

Thank you, Mat, for all you do for Silver Star!

About Meet the Team

Silver Star is very fortunate to have a team of unique and talented individuals that work whole-heartedly to contribute to the success of our company. Without them working diligently, both behind-the-scenes and first-hand with our customers, we would not be able to meet our rural communities’ technology and communications needs.

Needless to say, we are very proud of our team and we would like to share them with you. So, every few weeks, we will introduce to you to a member of our team by sharing a short interview-style member profile.
