Martin is an absolute techie at heart, having been involved in IT for over 15 years. He has spent the majority of his career at Chester Zoo, working his way up to Head of IT. However, he is now moved on to be Head of IT at Moneypenny.

Over the years he has been mainly focussed on the Network and Security side of IT, but has always thought of himself as an all-rounder. Once he started getting better at the technical side of security he noticed how vulnerable people were. Being a people person is how he differentiates himself to most “typical” IT people.  

He became a CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) and has enjoyed volunteering for them too with their safe and secure online campaign.

With Moneypenny, he runs Business Classes with local schools which involve dumpster dives and Information Security briefings. I am also Membership Secretary for the BCS North Wales and Chester committee, regularly trying to encourage more and more people into IT.
