In Detail

Martin was the CEO of Dyson for 15 years. As CEO, he devised and implemented a strategy that transformed the company from a single product, single market producer into one where 80% of the business came from over 60 markets around the world, achieving market leadership in the majority including the USA. He is Chairman to FreeFlow Technologies, Chairman of Lightfoot which was launched in 2013 and Chairman of The Dudson Group. He is also Chairman of Glen Dimplex Group, founded over 40 years ago.

He looks at growing a business in challenging times, expanding overseas, and the importance of manufacturing and export to the UK economy.
