Martyn has worked in the display industry for 25 years, setting up Pinetree Enterprises Ltd in 1998.
Always being a strong supporter of developing young people, Pinetree has had a development programme for 11 years, with our first company trainee still being a member of staff and now part of the senior management scheme. Martyn became involved in the apprenticeship programme 4 years ago and became an apprenticeship ambassador for the then skills funding agency.
Promoting this fantastic opportunity is very close to his heart. Martyn promotes it at every opportunity, being a member of FSB and Chamber of Commerce and in 2016 becoming chairman of Business East Hants. Whether discussing apprenticeships with Members of Parliament, the local LEP or organisations involved with apprenticeships, everyone agrees that the scheme leads to a real win-win outcome that is great for any business.
