Paul Matthei, former Editor of Diesel Magazine and experienced commercial transport writer, has joined the team at Prime Creative Media.
Mr. Matthei brings to the team a vast amount of experience in the transport and trucking realm. He started his working career in the late 1980s as mechanic before gaining his HC licence in the early ‘1990s. From there he transitioned into truck driving, later acquiring his MC license and gaining considerable experience operating B-doubles.
In 2004 the opportunity arose to join Diesel Magazine as a journalist and Paul learned his craft. After his four year ‘apprenticeship’, Mr. Matthei assumed the role of Editor of Diesel, a position he held for the following four years.
At Prime Creative Media, Mr. Matthei will work as a Senior Transport Writer, spreading his expertise across Prime Mover Magazine, Diesel Magazine, Trailer Magazine, and CRT News.
“I’m thrilled to join such a vibrant team at Prime Creative Media, that has done so much to support the growth of the commercial transport industry,” he says. “These are very exciting times given the strong optimism within the industry that we haven’t seen since before the GFC a decade ago.
“Prime Creative Media has a comprehensive suite of products that are well placed to meet the needs of the market and I’m very pleased to be able to add my knowledge and experience to the mix,” he adds.
John Murphy, Managing Director at Prime Creative Media, says that the addition of Mr. Matthei to the editorial team will continue to cement the publisher’s position as a trusted expert in the road transport sector.
“Paul’s wealth of experience will compliment well our team of writers and journalists dedicated to the transport sector, helping us develop the best content to showcase the industry and our commercial partners,” says Mr. Murphy. “He shares common values with Prime Creative Media and is looking to support the growth of the road transport industry.”
