Matt Carter is the founder and managing director of Message House, a campaigns and research consultancy.[1]

He is the former General Secretary of the Labour Party, Europe, Middle East and Asia managing director of WPP subsidiary Penn Schoen & Berland and UK managing director of Burson Marsteller.

The former Labour Party general secretary who is at the heart of the "cash for peerages" investigation being carried out by Scotland Yard has had four laptop computers stolen from his office in London.
The theft from the Bloomsbury offices of Penn, Schoen & Berland, the Washington DC-headquartered consultancy where Matt Carter is managing director, was reported to police in Holborn on October 9. It is not known what data was kept on the stolen computers...
Carter's letters to rich Labour Party supporters who had agreed to lend money in the run-up to the 2005 general election are understood to have a key bearing on the police investigation [1]
