New chief executive for the Fork Lift Truck Association

Peter Harvey MBE has been appointed chief executive of the Fork Lift Truck Association. He takes over from David Ellison, who has retired after more than a decade of service.

Before joining the FLTA, Harvey spent 37 years with the British Army.  β€œHe has, in David, a very tough act to follow, but I am certain Peter will play a pivotal role in the development of the FLTA and the entire fork lift truck industry,” said FLTA chairman Martyn Fletcher.
