Chairman of The Delivery Group Paul Carvell has been elected as Freeman of the City of London and Liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Carmen.
Carvell has been elected in recognition of his forty-plus years in the transport and logistics industry.
The Worshipful Company of Carmen is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London, whose origins date back to 1517. The organisation is part of a City-wide fellowship of historic and modern guilds reflecting trades, crafts, industries and professions.
“I feel extremely honoured to have been recognised and elected to the position of Liveryman,” said Carvell. “Although the history of the Carmen dates back many centuries, the work that the Company does now is highly relevant and beneficial.
“Much of the focus is on charity and fundraising and we are also able to meet regularly with senior politicians and industry heads.”
