He trained as an apprentice welder and fabricator, working in sheet metal engineering for 18 years. His career has spanned the shop floor to senior management roles, and whilst his title might suggest otherwise, Matthew insists he is merely the company’s ‘dog’s body!’
Matthew is most proud of playing a key role in the growth and development of Yorkshire Laser – from their humble back street beginnings to being a leading provider of laser cutting services and sheet metal fabrication.
Matthews’s guilty pleasures include Beer, Curry and Rugby – although not necessarily in that order! He is a devoted Castleford Tigers fan and also a motorbike enthusiast, participating in track riding, touring and weekend blasts.
Matthews’s philosophy for life is founded upon a Winston Churchill quote: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
