Later, Matthew joined a large multi-national vehicle rental brand by developing market share and growth and worked for a large automotive wholesaler, selling into the independent and dealership garage network throughout Scotland. Because of his diverse work positions in different industries, Matthew has adopted many work skills helping him become an adaptable and agile generalist who can provide leadership in all industries and business settings.
1. Why did you choose Willbox?
I chose Willbox because of two reasons: growth and culture. Growth excites me and because of this, I chose to become a part of a fast-growing business. When I met with the team and understood the growth journey Willbox is on, I wanted to be involved. Culture is key in every business. The family-owned aspect of Willbox and the wider Williams Shipping Group is really attractive. There is a close, welcoming feel. I have always believed that good people make a business, everything else is a side effect.
2. How do you think that your previous experience will support you in your new role?
Diversification into multiple industries will be a key part of growing the Willbox brand in Scotland. There are so many more industries out there in addition to the well-established construction market. My own diverse and broad experience will help untap that potential. Growing market share and geographical footprint is what I do. I can’t wait to see Willbox expand and realise its ambitions.
3. What do you want to achieve with Scotland's depots?
I want Willbox to become one of the leading site accommodation and shipping container suppliers in Scotland, to become better today than we were yesterday, and better tomorrow than we are today. With excellent customer service and strategy, I know that growth will happen and the brand will expand.
