Matt Gillespie DESIGN MANAGER
Matt likes motor racing, rugby and crossfit training. The racing bit is from the stands if it involves the 2 wheeled variety but he would love the opportunity to drive an early 2000’s F1 car round one of the classic racing circuits – Spa Francochamps would be perfect. I think we all can remember the feral scream of the then V8/V10 F1 engines at 20,000rpm!
Training for the toughest Spartan races is what really inspires Matt – pushing yourself beyond what limits you may think you have and finding out what you are truly capable of achieving is a fantastic trait and that is a number one feature of him and the design team that he heads up. You look around and look at nature for those inspirational creatures that don’t believe in failure; ‘consider the ant’ capable of carrying 100x its own bodyweight! Inspiration for Matt indeed.
We all dream of the perfect road trip and Matt would love to travel the West Coast of America taking in the sunshine coast, San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles – coming from Scotland where we can only dream of their 300+ days of wall to wall sunshine every year, we would all like to go too!
So apart from a drive to succeed in every area of life, when it’s time to stop an relax, then dial Matt up a Dominos stuffed crust pizza and a blockbuster with his girlfriend.
