He held several roles at ISG and is presently managing director of ISG Retail where he has steered the ongoing integration of the Pearce and Cathedral fit-out businesses.
Before joining ISG four years ago, he was chief executive of Pearce Group where he led a rapid turnaround of a struggling business.
Under his management, the business grew from revenues of £120m to £320m and returned to profitability.
This prompted ISG to buy Pearce Group in November 2007 and appoint Forrest to the board.
He played a key role in integrating Pearce into ISG and served as chairman of ISG Europe for a year.
