Matt Starner, HIS

Matt is licensed as a Hearing Aid Specialist by the State of Ohio’s Hearing Aid Dealers and Fitters Licensing Board and has been since 1997.  Matt started his career of helping the hearing impaired in 1997 in Zanesville, Ohio working for Beltone Hearing Center.  In 2000, Matt and the Norvell Family left the Beltone network to better serve the 8 county area that they covered.  In late 2000 Norvell’s Hearing Center switched their supplier of hearing aids to the Audibel Network and have been members of the Audibel Family since.  

In 2005 Matt was promoted to Vice President of Operations for the newly formed Echo-Norvell Hearing Aid Services, Inc. in Newark Ohio.  Echo-Norvell was opened in October of 2005 with the knowledge that Licking and Fairfield Counties deserved a much higher level of hearing healthcare.  From the onset, our patients note that Echo-Norvell is a true hearing healthcare facility and not just a place that sells hearing aids. In October of 2013 Matt was promoted to President of Echo-Norvell Hearing Aid Services Inc.

Matt is currently the Vice President of the Hearing Healthcare Alliance of Ohio. He has also been appointed by the Governors office to the Ohio Hearing Aid Dealers and Fitters Licensing Board where he was elected to be the Vice Chairman of the board.

Matt and his wife Amy reside in Zanesville and have a son, Kaleb who is active in basketball and other school related activities.  They all enjoy spending time together camping, going to sporting events and other family activities.  They all are involved in charities that are near and dear to their hearts.
