Matthew Eastwood to leave Energy Saving Trust for Uber

Matt Eastwood has been in his EST role for eight months

Matthew Eastwood is to leave Energy Saving Trust (EST) at the end of this month to take up a new role with multinational ride-hail taxi service Uber.

Eastwood, who spent almost four years at EST, latterly as head of transport, will be responsible for developing and maintaining Uber’s relationship with Government and local authorities regarding its operations in Scotland and the north east of England.

“It has been a privilege to work for Energy Saving Trust and its government funders to support organisations and individual consumers make the switch to ultra-low emission vehicles and reduce transport costs and emissions,” Eastwood said.

“However, I’m delighted to be joining Uber at a very exciting time for the company and I’m looking forward to supporting the development a range of mobility options – whether cars, bikes, scooters or public transport – all through the Uber app.”

EST will be looking to recruit a new head of transport. In the interim, the transport team will be jointly managed by senior programme manager, Scottish Transport, Ellie Grebenik and senior programme manager, English Transport, Tim Anderson.
