Martin Stanning, Operations & Finance Director

Martin is a brand strategist (he also looks after operations and finances). He is brilliant at identifying the most important strategic goals for a brand, without any of the noise.

He joined Sharp Relations at the start of 2020 after 11 years as an officer in the British Army. When he’s not inputting into client strategies or implementing systems and processes, or keeping the finances in check, he’s an Active Reservist for HM Forces.

As a business we have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and we actively seek not to discriminate in anyway. From the opportunities our work creates, to recruitment, supplier chains and beyond. For us, we have agreed three questions we ask ourselves in all we do: Is it sustainable? Is it ethical? Is it fair?

Weekends are spent walking in Kentish countryside with family and Aber and Juno the office dogs!

Favourite drink: By day, coffee all the way, in the evening a pint of Kentish Ale.

Favourite food: A great appreciator of anything that needs appreciating.

Favourite place to eat out: The Small Holding, Kilndown
