Martin says, "I am incredibly proud to feature in the top 42 business leaders in the south west, it is a great accolade and will help demonstrate what sets us apart as a specialist in the travel insurance sector. I am constantly driven by getting the best deal for our customers, with nearly 40 years of expertise behind us, employing and developing a fantastic team and ensuring our systems and processes work at their optimum I am committed to providing the best products and services to our customers."

The company specialises in travel insurance and in particular, providing cover for people with pre-existing medical conditions. The company operates a number of travel insurance products, with World First Travel Insurance being the principal brand.
Relocating to Exeter in Devon in 2011, Martin still works alongside his Mum, Suzanne and brother, Tristan and nearly 30 staff in their new headquarters. Martin regularly puts in a 50+ hour week, as he oversees the company’s operations including underwriting, marketing, development, IT and media teams. His passion and commitment is a real recipe for success as the company has grown ten-fold in the last four years.
