New Managing Director for Matchtech
Today Grahame Carter, former Operations Director – Infrastructure at Matchtech steps into a new role as Matchtech Managing Director.
In his role as MD Grahame, who has worked with the company for 16 years, will be responsible for leading, developing and growing the engineering business and will continue to offer engineering expertise for large scale and innovative projects.
Speaking about his new appointment, Grahame Carter said:
“I’m thrilled to be taking on a new challenge within the company which has supported my development for the best part of 17 years. In an industry which traditionally has a high staff turnover rate, I’m proud to have remained working for Matchtech for so long and have enjoyed building great relationships along the way with colleagues, clients and candidates.”
“I look forward to continue building on these relationships in my role as MD.”
The appointment comes at a time when the UK engineering sector is seeing significant investment across a variety of projects, which includes continued development in connected cars, HS2, the Thames Tideway Project, Hinckley Point and the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carrier support programme in Portsmouth.
Prior to the announcement of Grahame’s promotion Keith Lewis had been acting as Matchtech’s Managing Director as well as Chief Operating Officer of Matchtech’s parent company, Gattaca. In Grahame’s new role he will report into Keith, who will focus on his role as COO of Gattaca, overseeing the operations of Matchtech and technology recruitment specialist Networkers.
Commenting on Grahame’s appointment Keith Lewis said:
“Grahame joined the company 16 years ago as a recruitment consultant, initially developing the water team, before focusing on developing the buildings, rail and power teams. He has built a strong, profitable infrastructure sector division and worked his way up to the role of Infrastructure Operations Director for Matchtech in 2014. Since then the infrastructure division has gone from strength to strength and we’ve seen some fantastic growth through Grahame’s leadership.”
He continued: “We had a very competitive recruitment process, with strong applicants both internally and externally. I am very proud that the best candidate for the role was from within the business.
With Grahame’s proven experience and record of accomplishment of success, this is a new and exciting challenge which we know Grahame will embrace.”
