Lloyd Martin chairs British Water's International Forum
Lloyd Martin, business development and strategic counsel for Bluewater Bio International, is now also chair of British Water's International Forum. Martin will serve as chair for the next three years, and will also be a member of British Water's board of directors.
The International Forum offers members of British Water that are active or interested in international trade, the opportunity to expand their commercial activities in overseas territories.
Martin brings more than 20 years’ water industry experience working in international markets, including regional director for Severn Trent Services International and business development manager at Anglian Water International. He has also undertaken a three-year assignment as the UK water industry’s international trade advisor to the British government.
In his role, Martin will serve as an ambassador for the UK water and wastewater supply chain internationally, raising the profile of UK capability and expertise as well as facilitating commercial introductions and trade for British Water members.
Martin said: “I have been committed to British Water’s international activities for at least 20 years, ever since I first began working overseas. I am a strong supporter of the key role that British Water can play in assisting companies that wish to expand their activities internationally.
"I intend to improve the forum’s ability to meet the needs of British Water’s members, by focusing on how best to provide information, knowledge and experience of exports to all, and by acting as a networking conduit for best-practices.”
Daniel Ishag, founder and CEO of Bluewater Bio International, said: “Lloyd has proven to be a highly valued member of our team over the past couple of years, with his extremely relevant business network both within the UK and internationally. I have the utmost faith in his ability to chair the International Forum and help drive business for the UK supply chain overseas.”
