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
