Please welcome Martyn Carr
On behalf of the BHBPA board of directors, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Martyn Carr who will take over the duties of Peter Liddell with effect from the beginning of January.
David, Jaffer and I all feel Martyn brings a blend of business experience and interests that will be ideal to meet the evolving needs of our association, while respecting the significant strides we have already taken.
Martyn’s CV is both deep and wide having held roles in Procurement, IT, Credit, Business Operations, Product Development, Supplier Management, Compliance and Consulting. He has worked with major brands including American Express, Legal & General, Thomas Cook, Sainsburys and EMI as well with not-for-profit organisations like the Royal College of GPs.
In recent times Martyn has been providing executive coaching services, mainly to SME businesses, having completed a Master’s degree several years ago, although he will now be putting this aspect of his work to one side as he focuses on BHBPA.
Martyn lives locally in Burgess Hill and recently became the proud grandfather to two beautiful granddaughters.
I am confident all members will find Martyn’s style to be collaborative and that he’ll be keen to support members as we work on issues of common interest across the BHBPA.
Please join me in welcoming Martyn and helping him to feel at home quickly.
Susan Fleet, Chair
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
