Mathew Knowles

Mathew Knowles (born January 9, 1951) is a Bahamian-American music executive and manager. He is the father of Beyoncé Knowles and Solange Knowles and former manager of Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Destiny's Child. Before Knowles became a star maker in the music business, he had distinguished himself by a career in sales of office and medical equipment. Knowles moved to Houston in 1976 and began working for the Xerox Corporation, with whom he enjoyed a successful 10-year tenure, primarily as part of an specialist unit in the medical systems sales division. Knowles was the number-one medical systems sales rep for three of the four years he worked in that division. When Xerox closed its medical systems division Knowles was working as a CT/MRI sales specialist, selling diagnostic imaging equipment to hospitals and health facilities—and for two other major medical equipment companies, as well. He also worked in the area of neurosurgical sales, representing a wide range of devices and solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. In 1992 Knowles left his career in corporate and medical sales to devote full-time attention to his growing music
