Matthew originally graduated as an engineer, taking a further qualification in accounting and finance. He started his working career in manufacturing, progressively working up from a shop floor engineer to sales and ultimately to general manager. It was here that he first developed an understanding of how robust, repeatable processes throughout every part of business deliver strong results with continuous improvement.
After around 12 years in manufacturing, Matthew moved to Otis. His work was initially focused in the UK, where he ran the installation and service businesses before becoming the Global Vice President of service, installation and quality, based in Connecticut. He then became Managing Director of the Australasia business, based in Sydney. While at Otis, the business doubled in size, entered new markets and achieved strong bottom line growth.
More recently, Matthew was Managing director of Stanley Security, and General Manager of Honeywell’s European project business.
Joining PTSG, Matthew saw an opportunity to be part of a business that has been on a very exciting journey for 15 years and to be part of the leadership to that take the business through its next phase of growth. His previous experience around M&A, integrating new business and leading business through periods of top and bottom line growth fits well with the trajectory.
Roger Teasdale, Group Manager Director of PTSG, said:
“In December 2021, the Group made a number of board level changes in Trinity Fire & Security. On 21 February 2022, we were delighted to appoint Matthew Marriott to lead the entire Fire Solutions Division.

“Matthew holds a BEng (Mechanical) and is ACCA qualified. He lives in Harpenden with his wife and three children and will have a base at the PTSG South Ockendon offices.”
Paul Teasdale, CEO of PTSG, commented: “This year, PTSG celebrates 15 years of business. We have grown each year and now offer an unparalleled portfolio of specialist services. PTSG Fire Solutions Ltd is a particular area of growth for us, boasting a wide range of mechanical, electrical and passive fire solutions.
