Martin has served 45 years within the printing industry and his experience spans an extremely wide range of print functions. He started his career with a 5 ½ year apprenticeship as a letterpress compositor at Surrey Fine Art Press in Redhill with day release to Reigate School of Art & Design, which successfully gained him both Intermediate and Advanced City & Guilds qualifications.
Martin then retrained in paper paste up / design and further increased his knowledge through negative film assembly & platemaking and progressed to 4 colour film assembly. Martin then turned his hand to studio management before progressing into a new customer service role managing client accounts.
Martin has known the Algar family since 1980 and has systematically worked with them in some capacity ever since. In 2008 Martin joined Cliffe Enterprise as a senior key account executive and now uses his vast knowledge in helping clients achieve the best from their budgets. Martin is keen walker and loves watching sport. A family man, he enjoys socialising and has a fondness for sitting in the sun and supping Real Ale.
