Martin Greenhalgh joins AVK UK as Managing Director. Martin steps into the shoes of Paul Jennings, who has been with AVK UK for 13 years, Paul has taken up a new position on the AVK UK Board as Director- Special Projects.
A mechanical and electrical engineer by training, Martin has held Director and Managing Director positions with multinational businesses like Biwater and SembCorp Utilities for over 20 years. He has worked extensively overseas in territories as diverse as Indonesia, Belize, and Chile. Most recently, Martin was Commercial Operations Director at the global water technology giant, Xylem.
‘Xylem is similar to AVK in many ways. It is a global multinational, it has a strong portfolio of brand names and it is active across products, services, and project engineering. The experience of managing this degree of diversity will be a great help in my exciting new role at AVK UK.
Martin believes in getting to the nub of an opportunity or challenge as quickly as possible: “I am fundamentally an engineer who has accumulated a mass of commercial and management acumen over the years. I am a direct and open person who prefers to ‘say it as it is’, and I want people to relate to me in the same way. I am looking forward to building on the excellent results Paul Jennings and his team have achieved in recent years.”
