Until recently regional sales manager with refrigerant producer Mexichem, Martyn will take over from Terry Seward, who retires next week after 16 years with the association.
Martyn brings nearly 25 years experience in the refrigerants business to his new role which will require him to manage the Heat Pump Association and several groups in the BRA, HEVAC and Chimney Associations. He will also be responsible for improving channels of communication internally to members, and externally to the many organisations, institutions, trade bodies and government departments relevant to the work of FETA.
Having joined ICI Plastics as a laboratory assistant in 1978, Martyn held a number of roles within ICI until being made UK account manager at ICI Klea – ICI’s former refrigerants and lubricants business – in 1992. When that business became Ineos Fluor in 2000, Martyn took on the role of regional sales manager for refrigerants, with responsibilities extended to include Ireland and Nordic region and, later, Benelux, Turkey and South Africa. And it was a role he was to continue when Ineos was acquired by Mexichem in 2010.
