Alongside contemplating overseas travel adventures or the fortunes of his beloved Burnley FC, Martin makes sure that the Group’s statutory financial reporting requirements are met, as part of several other crucial responsibilities.
These include ensuring that all relevant best-practice financial controls are in place, and that timely, accurate management information is delivered to the directors for review and decision-making purposes.
Martin is a Chartered Accountant and his extensive experience is the result of a varied career spanning a broad range of business sectors. Moving on from practice he worked in finance for some prominent North West businesses, including Renold Plc and Allied London Properties. He is particularly proud to have been Group Financial Controller with Allied London through the construction and initial tenancies phases at the prestigious Spinningfields development in Manchester.
But for Martin, it's not just all about the corporate world – a few years back he took a career break to travel around the globe.
