Staff Spotlight: Matt Foster

As projects director at Keith Elkington Transport, Matt Foster’s daily duties involve the vital management of key logistical projects. Matt started his journey with Keith Elkington Transport three-years-ago and since then has become an integral part of the team, utilising his experience and industry expertise to ensure that day-to-day business runs as smoothly as possible.

Starting out in the industry around 15-years-ago, Matt began his career delivering refrigeration, before going on to work on projects and more tool based work, which mainly involved sub-contracting for a main distributor, as well as smaller companies and engineers. In this time, Matt forged an enviable reputation within the industry, which ultimately led to his instatement as projects director with Keith Elkington Transport. With significant responsibilities in the running of the firm, Matt primarily oversees all of Keith Elkington Transport’s projects, managing everything from quoting to delivery.

Matt said: “I have always enjoyed a challenge, both physically and mentally, so a complex delivery or large project where we have been required to carry out our services outside off the UK has always been something I have relished getting my teeth into.”

His role encompasses the surveying of sites, dealing directly with clients to address their specific requirements. This could be assessing a site for a convenient access point to finding a solution to challenging projects such as delivering catering equipment to a kitchen on the seventh floor of a building or organising transportation of goods overseas.

“All of this work cannot be done, however, without keeping the important day-to-day tasks in order, which is something that both my team and I can take pride in,” added Matt.
