Martyn joined Healthier Weight in 2010 and took up the role of Managing Director later that year.
Before joining Healthier Weight held senior positions in the insurance, travel and publishing sectors respectively with Commercial Union (Aviva), British Airways Airmiles and Reader’s Digest. In these companies, Martyn held a range of management positions, both with a UK and international focus.
When asked about his priorities as a leader Martyn said:
‘I think it’s very important that everyone in the business has coherent and aligned objectives so we are all pulling in the same direction. As Managing Director I see it as my responsibility to make sure that our people have the resources they need to do their job well, whether that’s IT systems and tools, processes, budgets, etc. I’m very proud of the team here. We’ve been together a long time and built a business that delivers a great service to our patients.’
Martyn’s interests outside of work lie in sport (he is a long-suffering Newcastle United fan), travel and reading. Martyn is also a Trustee of the Child bereavement charity, Simon Says. This Hampshire based charity provides support for young people, and the families of young people, who are dealing with bereavement.
