Martin set the standard on client focus and performance well before client surveys and testimonials became fashionable.
I’ve had the pleasure of engaging Martin as our insurance adviser for many years through different firms. He always went into bat for us and scored a ton even when we were facing hard markets, major claims or just looking to re-structure our program.
His relationships in the insurance markets are exceptional. He ran his team servicing many clients but we always felt we had his priority.
I would have no hesitation in engaging him again and so it goes without saying that I would commend him to any position where exceptional team leadership and performance are required.

Chief Operating Officer
JLL Hotels (Former Executive General Counsel – Asia Pacific JLL Group)
As Asia Pacific Regional Finance Director of a large multinational, multi modal freight/logistics and TPL warehousing company with more than 23,000 employees, one of my key accountabilities was managing risk for the businesses in my jurisdiction. When evaluating risk and insurance requirements across a complex and dynamic business framework, it is crucial that you partner with the right advisers. My personal view is that the time investment required by both parties to understand the business drivers, and functional activities conducted by large organisations such as the one I worked for is so great, that you have to develop relationships with people you both trust and carry levels of expertise not often found in the general market place.
To this end I was delighted to establish exactly this type of relationship with Martin and his team, who earned my confidence and consistently demonstrated their value throughout their tenure as our broker over many years.
Specifically, Martin was able to highlight deficiencies in our program, give us advice on how we approached risk and structure a program that better suited our business. The day to day service never wavered.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Martin to any organisation who seeks a valued insurance and risk business partner.
