Starting his career in 1987, Martin worked for the Financial Services Corporation as a Mortgage Broker where he quickly excelled. After only three years he was successfully managing the Mortgage department. By 1996, Martin had moved to Sterling Properties working in the lettings field for the first time. It was here, working alongside the founder of the business, that Martin developed the financial services arm of the company. After many years of hard work, the London Scottish Banking Group acquired Sterling Properties where Martin remained as Head of Operations.
