I had the pleasure of working with Matt during his tenure with TransPennine Express from 2012 through to 2016. Matt was nothing but a loyal, dedicated member of the team and it was an absolute pleasure to work with him. We were a small but perfectly formed team, so it really was all hands to the pump when needed, and we still miss Matt.
Matt was always first to volunteer, whatever the task and never afraid to get involved in wider business demands. He was a great ambassador for our business and fronted a number of external events at the cutting edge.
Matt has extensive experience of responding to a range of issues, which he always does in a calm, considered way. He has a lot to be proud of during his railway life, from managing a number of high profile events, delivering leadership conferences, launching a new fleet of trains, responding to industrial unrest, and working with the bid team to mobilise a new franchise to name a few.
I would highly recommend Matt to any prospective business whatever your comms requirements. Matt is an impressive specialist across a range of subjects including media support, crisis comms, event planning and PR, but is also a highly flexible leader and willing to support wider business requirements.
