Martin has a Bachelor of Business Studies, a Diploma in Finance and is a qualified Chartered Accountant. He has a sharp intellect, is very approachable and has a solid business background. His experience extends from that of management cadet with Fletcher Steel in the 1980’s, to President Fletcher Forests USA (based in the USA), to General Manager Fonterra Ingredients NZ, to business owner/manager.
At LINK's International conference in Bangkok, Martin won both 2018 New Zealand broker of the year and 2018 International broker of the year. Martin was recently awarded 2020 New Zealand broker of the year and 2020 International broker of the year and the Largest Deal in New Zealand and Internationally for 2020.
After a successful corporate career spanning 25 years, Martin decided it was time to become a business owner and grow his own equity instead of someone else’s and with that, he became a business owner. Together with his wife, he purchased (through LINK) and managed a successful Auckland based sales, manufacturing and installation business. A few years on they purchased another business, a decision to integrate it with the existing company added significant value, and after 7 years they sold through LINK.
With a strong business background, finance qualifications, and having experienced the sale and purchase process, Martin decided to embark on a career as a business broker; joining LINK was the obvious choice.
Outside of work, Martin enjoys time with his wife and their two daughters. They all enjoy spending time at their bach in the Coromandel, where he loves to fish the mussel farms, whenever the weather permits.
Martin offers a well-managed and stress-free approach to business broking. He is always happy to meet for a confidential discussion, give you a free appraisal of your business, and look at opportunities to maximise its value and ready it for sale. Call or email him today.
