Carlton Forest Group has appointed Alex Matthias as its new partner and chief development officer, joining CEO Mark Pepper and chief operating officer Diane Ward.

The family-owned 3PL and 4PL said Matthias brought years of director-level experience across disciplines including sales, business growth, policy, engineering, and energy.

He joined Carlton Forest Group two years ago and was involved in the growth of its renewables division and its continuous pyrolysis project for end-of-life tyres.

“I am delighted to welcome Alex as partner and, having worked with him for the last two years, know that he is perfectly suited to the role,” said Pepper. “Alex’s entrepreneurial spirit, tenacity and focus will help us to deliver ongoing success and establish the business, across all its divisions, as a major player in the UK business landscape.”

Carlton Forest Group is based in Worksop and operates across logistics, renewable energy and property.
