Managing Director 
Email Martyn 
Martyn is the Managing Director of AMB, and has been instrumental in driving the success of the company, whilst managing and developing teams. Martyn has also forged lasting partnerships with major clients across the UK. Martyn lives by the ‘never give up’ motto and always strives to keep pushing AMB to be as successful as they can be. 
 
Martyn has come from a Mechanical Engineering / Construction background and has worked all over the world. He worked his way up from the tools to supervisor, then to management. He then came up with the idea to start AMB into recruitment, as he was recruiting his own labour on most sites with great feedback from clients. 
 
On week nights you will find Martyn at his local gym and on weekends he loves spending time with friends and family, playing football or on the golf course - if he’s not working of course!
