Andrew Malcolm, CEO of the Malcolm Group, has been awarded and MBE in the King's Birthday Honours list, for services to the transport industry.
The 61-year-old worked his way through the company from driving an HGV at the age of 16 to his current position today.
During Andrew's tenure, turnover has increased from £86m in 2001 to £223m in 2020, with the workforce almost doubling in size to over 2,100 employees.
Alongside his many business achievements, he is passionate about supporting charitable endeavour and improving lives both overseas in Africa as a key partner of Transaid and at home in his support to local hospices and cancer charities.
"It is a fantastic honour in recognition of not just of the sector I'm involved in but, more importantly, of the family company that I have the pleasure of leading.
"In some respects I've been quite lucky in life in that I do what I enjoy and I enjoy what I do.
"Although I'm the fortunate one who gets the honour, it is in no small way due to the business and team that I have around me."
Congratulations, Andrew, from everyone at Multimodal!
