Managing Director, UK Construction West
Rob Martin is the managing director for ISG’s western construction division in the UK, and under various guises, has been based in Bristol and with ISG for over 20 years. Rob has led the UK Construction West business out of recession to become a key part of ISG’s business. Today his region has a turnover of £180m, employs over 200 people and delivers a broad range of construction projects up to £65m.
Rob is a civil engineer by background, with a BSc from Edinburgh University, and has over 35 years of industry experience. Rob started his career as a site engineer, quickly moving up the ranks of Wimpey Construction. He joined Pearce Group in 1997 as a project manager for new build retail superstores. Rob went on to lead a number of blue-chip retail customer accounts which led to his promotion to operations director in 2002. Pearce was acquired by ISG in 2007 and Rob moved from ISG’s retail division to the UK Construction team in the autumn of 2013.
Rob is proud to be able to call ISG a fully established regional contractor that delivers new build projects to customers across the education, office, retail, technology and industrial sectors from an impressive amount of repeat-order business. Rob’s key strengths are around building delivery teams and procuring work from loyal clients on the back of exceptional customer focus.
Being Northern Irish he naturally gravitated to Wales (Celts) and lives in Cardiff with all the rest of the best people.
