Group Operating Director
Martin joined Magnus in 2020 attracted by the challenge of developing and growing the family business. His first eighteen months included a worldwide pandemic, Brexit, and a driver shortage. And he has loved it! Martin thrives on a challenge and believes the sky is the limit for the Transport division at Magnus.
Martin has worked in logistics and transport since his early 20s building a formidable reputation and strong skill set. Martin has worked for international organisations as well as local family-run businesses, developing a network of trusted contacts.
If you wonder where Martin’s accent comes from it’s a mix of being born in Yorkshire, raised in Suffolk, 15 years in Merseyside, and married to a lady from Durham!
From the age of 7, Martin dreamed of being in the Navy: even at that age Martin had the determination and motivation to achieve his dreams, and at 16 he left Suffolk to head to Plymouth to join the Navy. Martin became a radio operator and loved life in the Navy but after four years his dream was shattered with a medical discharge. On his return to Suffolk, he “fell” into a temporary job working for a freight company and has never looked back.
Martin enjoys walking, skiing, and running to keep active and fit. Martin and his wife frequently take part in local charity runs together.
