Martin has worked in print production/management for 30 years. Initially he worked for a financial printer, managing rights issue documents and Report & Accounts for the likes of Lloyds of London.

He was approached in 1995 to become Production Manager of a rapidly expanding printer and was a key figure in managing the growth of the business from £1m turnover to £4m in the space of 4 years.

He then moved into Print Finishing and spent 10 years as Production Manager progressing to Production Director of a multi-award winning company managing the industry firsts of in-line personalisation and in-line shape cutting.

In 2007 Martin moved into Print Management based on-site at Shell’s headquarters in London and was responsible for managing their Centre of Excellence’s print requirements for 10 years which included purchasing print in Egypt, Brazil, Australia, Asia for the global launch to the press of the Shell / BG merger in 2016.

The lure of returning to manufacturing proved too strong and Martin has recently joined VR as Head of Production, managing the day to day running of the factory.
