Management Team – CFL

Matthew Ware

Matthew is an experienced logistics and courier senior manager, spending nearly 16 years in operations management at FedEx Express. Matthew first joined the board of CFL in 2013 as the shareholder representative for FedEx Express and as chair of the board instigated the move of employing an independent chairman to take CFL forward. He was appointed Managing Director in January 2017.

When Matthew isn’t thinking about how to make things better for the courier industry he enjoys unwinding watching sport, keeping fit, drinking wine and cooking. Sometimes all at the same time.
