Being good at anything in life takes practice, perseverance, resilience and most importantly an open mind that never stops learning and improving. We’d like to think the version of us today is better than the ‘us’ of yesterday but not as good as the version of ‘us’ next year.  PACE is our consultancy evolution, it’s time to re-imagine how Professional Services are delivered.

Martin brings extensive business management, industry knowledge and investment experience to PACE. In the role of Chairman Martin outlines the goals for the company and his personal approach: PACE will relentlessly focus on the use of knowledge to deliver change, driving improved outcomes for its clients. The Accelerator principal is born out of the management team’s passion to deliver effective and rapid change, where automation is at the heart of this change process. The knowledge centric approach sets PACE apart from other organisations. My desire is to help the team build a business that protects its core principles and serves clients in a truly partnership manner, where risks and rewards are shared.

My list of learnings started with a career in the Royal Marines where I was surrounded by outstanding leaders, part of a highly  capable team, experiencing awe inspiring camaraderie and delivering outcomes with a laser focus on achieving the Objectives. After a change of direction, I was running projects across the UK’s major airports, from the Marines to Technology Project Management, the only difference being the Muck & Bullets, everything else was the same (Leadership, Teamwork, Objectives), leading a UK wide network transformation for 7 airports including Heathrow – this was the best education of my life!
