Martin was born on a warm summers afternoon in the Mother city Cape Town, South Africa. His interests after high school led him firstly into the mechanical engineering and thereafter, into emergency medical field. He achieved National Colours in Acrobatics and was a member of the Acrobatic Federation of South Africa as well as being a Provincial Athlete and a Professional Ballroom and Latin Dancer, yet in his second year of medical studies, Martin was injured in a freak diving accident which changed his life path forever.
Thereafter, relying fully on his engineering background, combined with his medical experience, Martin forcefully took charge of circumstances and began to climb the entrepreneurial ladder to become the successful, multi award-winning businessman he is today. Yet Martin believes that his business success is not only his own doing, but also his employees – without whom he can do nothing. He has managed to nurture and inspire the most important asset in his company, his employees.
