Martin has managed the development of a number of retail and F&B projects in Australia, Singapore and China, before taking up a project management role in Dubai where he consulted to Nakheel Shopping Malls and later, Emirates Leisure Retail.
Along with his Partners, Martin co-founded multi-award-winning Compass Project Consulting in 2014. To date, the Team has successfully delivered over 150 F&B as well as hospitality projects throughout the region, representing respected owners, operators, designers and landlords to deliver memorable destinations.
With a growing Team of 65 Project, Planning and Cost Management professionals, across regional offices, Martin and his three Partners continuously maintain a keen eye on trends, opportunities, and challenges associated with the industry, ensuring an innovative hands-on insight is applied to each and every project.
Martin’s design awareness, client focus, commercial acumen and attention to detail fine-tunes his role at Compass, where he is responsible for Business Development of the company’s operations in the UAE & KSA, with a specific interest in the evolving F&B market in the Kingdom… which coincidently complements one of his favorite pastimes: exploring the effervescent foodie scene and appreciating talent within the F&B-sphere, with great clients, colleagues and friends.
