Prior to assuming his position as CEO of The Football Association, Martin has worked in several leadership spots, including CEO if United Biscuits and Birds Eye Igloo. Martin was President of Walkers Snack Foods, whom he joined in 1992, working his way up from Director of New Product Development, Vice-President of Marketing (where he introduced the on-going Gary Lineker advertising campaign and launched the ‘Doritos Tortilla Chip’ brand) to become Walkers President in 1998. His talent and aptitude for spotting a good marketing opportunity was clear from his first role.

He gave a different business perspective; a realistic philosophy which inspired me to think more about what consumers want.
