Martin joined Rochem in 1992 as Technical Manager based in the UK. He has over 34 years experience in the gas turbine field, initially working for Centrax Gas Turbines as a Commissioning Engineering before progressing to Shell in the Netherlands as an Operations and Maintenance Engineer in CHP projects. He then transferred to Emstar PLC as a Senior Commissioning Engineer for a CHP plant in Greenwich, completing that stage of his career as Operations and Maintenance Manager, before joining Rochem.
Martin started his career as a Marine Engineering Officer in the British Merchant Navy, travelling the world before returning to university to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering. An extensive knowledge of mechanical and electrical engineering together with hands on experience with gas turbines provides a bedrock for his work at Rochem. He was appointed Rochem Group Engineering Manager in 2002 and then Managing Director in June 2016. He is now enjoying the new challenge of leading the company forward.

He plans to complete the full distance before the next BIG birthday!
