About the Neurella Labs Executive Team
CEO, CFO, Chairman of the Board of Directors
Matt Crawford, CEO of Neurella Labs, has spent the past 15 years working in the OOH advertising sales and marketing industry. He has worked for top media firms OUTFRONT Media and Intersection (formerly Titan Outdoor). His prime achievements were in business development and operations management. During his tenure at Titan Outdoor he won industry awards in 2006 “Breakout Player of the Year” and was credited in 2008 with creating a business unit for production and inventory development. The business unit he ran for 7 years quickly became the fastest growing and profitable within the company. Subsequently, Matt embarked on fulfilling his dream, setting off to create a business of his own. Thus was born the consulting firm Sasta Business Solutions, initially to manage Neurella Labs but rapidly spinning off multiple other ventures, attracting numerous clients.
When personal tragedy struck with his mother’s shocking diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer and his mother-in-law struggling with ‘untreatable’ dementia, Matt turned his focus, dedication and skills to helping others. He joined forces with one of the brain experts involved with dementia research and built a team of medical experts who applied their collective clinical wisdom to become a natural brain supplement company and formulate the first product. Neurella daily supplement that contain 12 multifunctional nutritional supplements (often called nutraceuticals or nootropics) designed to give your brain everything it needs to perform at its best and to naturally reduce risks associated with brain-related ailments like Alzheimer’s, Brain Trauma and Stroke.
With the Neurella Labs team in place, Matt has guided Neurella Labs through its inception and launch towards a multimillion dollar company dedicated to a wide range of products. The team will target sectors ranging from improving mind-body wellness through innovative supplements to address unmet needs and support healthy ageing, to functional nutrition and cutting-edge, technologically-interfaced personal care modalities.
On top of being a very active CEO, Matt is a father of two young boys and loving husband to his wife Cathy. He also co-produces Jim Karol’s podcast Purely Mental.

Dr. Mohammed Sbia
Dr. Mohammed Sbia, Ph.D. in Neuroscience
Dr. Mohammed Sbia is a Ph.D. in neuroscience (University of Paris-XI) with an extensive background in academia and the private sector. His research covered neurogenetics, neuropharmacology, cell therapy and brain plasticity. His main clinical interests include transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative conditions.
In 2007, Dr. Sbia lost his older brother to complications following severe traumatic brain injury. This life-changing event inspired him to start a neuro-rehabilitation clinic in his homeland of Morocco, The Moulay Ali Institute for Rehabilitation ( MAIR). Since founding MAIR, Dr. Sbia developed a strong interest in cutting-edge neurological rehabilitation approaches and innovation in neuroplasticity and its clinical applications. Dr Sbia has spent decades exploring the brain’s function both when healthy and when disease or trauma strikes. His scientific work has been published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Sbia has been a positive force behind the creation of Neurella, having engaged in discussions that led to its current formula. He is a strong believer in using non-invasive, complementary alternative medicine. While also an advocate for conventional medical approaches when absolutely necessary, Dr. Sbia favors limiting the use of drugs in a more creative and balanced fashion. Accordingly, Neurella was given to several patients at the MAIR clinic shortly after it was introduced in the US market. It is exciting to report that the MAIR team has been observing very encouraging early data about Neurella helping kids and adults with a variety of neurological conditions.
In joining Team Neurella, Dr. Sbia brings stellar credentials in the field of clinical neurosciences and brain health. Together with a growing scientific advisory board, Dr. Sbia will help Neurella Labs become a worldwide nutraceutical provider with far-reaching benefits for patients with neurological and related health conditions or those focused on wellness and prevention.
