“As the VP of infra within a rapidly moving financial services company I need an external consultant that can come in and give me impartial advice on complex issues quickly and to the point. Martin fits the bill perfectly, combining his extensive technical knowledge with a pragmatic approach to organisational and business challenges. I would unreservedly recommend him to any technology executive that needs an impartial consultant who understands both the detail of the technology and the need for practicality in business life”

– Jonathan Chapman, VP at Global Collect


“Martin is an excellent architect with a strong understanding of business needs and implementing complex projects. I was impressed by his clear thinking on challenging problems and his high quality of work.”

– Jeremy Hore, Managing Director at Alkira Consulting


“Recommendation: Ed has vision, consummate planning and management skills and an eye for the details. He is open and engaging but most importantly, he makes decision and follows them through. ”

– Simon Shearston, Chief Technologist at Talking2


“Martin designed the IT Architecture for Spire Healthcare, a £1.5Bn private hospital provider. Our infrastructure was reliable, performant, scalable and cost effective. A great result. ”

– Marc O’Brien, Chief Information Officer at Spire Healthcare


“Martin supported the Edinburgh Airport IT team prepare a plan to separate its entire IT systems landscape as part of the pre-sale work. This work was completed in a very short timescale despite covering a breadth of over 200 business applications, all infrastructure, operational tools and data centre provision. The work was ultimately used very successfully as the heart of IT expert sessions with the short listed bidders and to allow an internal estimate for the post-sale cost of IT separation. Martin has an encyclopaedic knowledge of technology at a low level allowing him to knit together detailed, integrated and therefore robust designs rapidly. He will always take time to explain any deep technology in easy to digest nuggets. Martin is very industrious and cracks on with any objective immediately and will go the extra mile to ensure a good result. Martin is open to challenge, different approaches and melds these to improve his and the teams overall output. Overall Martin was instrumental in delivering a great piece of work that has given much value to Edinburgh Airport both pre and post its sale from BAA.”

– Stewart Dobbie, Head of IT at BAA
