Pallet-Track has appointed Julian Maturi as the network’s new non-executive chairman, replacing John Allen.

Maturi is arguably best known for his time at rival pallet network Palletways, most recently as chairman of the business – in both non and executive versions of the role.

He left Palletways after the sale to Imperial Logistics in 2016.

Nigel Parkes, founder and MD of Pallet-Track, said: “We are delighted to welcome Julian to the board as we enter a new chapter in Pallet-Track’s ongoing success story.

“With his wide experience and depth of understanding of the sector, I know he will be a great asset to the business going forward.”

Earlier this year Pallet-Track’s Parkes and commercial director Carol Jones sold a controlling stake in the business to TPA Capital.

In March, at the time of the deal, TPA Partner Greg Allen said “We’re incredibly excited to be in a position to support Pallet-Track with the next stage of its growth story.”
