While still studying at school, Martin began working part-time in a metal fabrication business. He won a place at Imperial College and a sponsorship from British Rail which led to several years in maintenance management. He then joined Air Products’, first in internal audit and then financial controllership modelling project finance for cryogenic plants.

This foundation led to a twenty-five-year career with international engineering consultants Atkins and latterly Jacobs, embracing Oil and Gas in Brunei and Venezuela, ports, railways, water, waste, power, property and IT/IS programmes.

Latterly Martin has been focused on providing technical and commercial due diligence for mergers and acquisitions of utilities, and project finance – notably for the world’s longest heated oil pipeline and Hinkley Point C nuclear power station.

For the last four years, Martin has led the Council of the IMechE. He has is also a member of the Power Industries Division and serves with the Academic Standards Panel to accredit degree courses.
