He expanded into network engineering, installing the Councils Parks & Recreation LAN's leading to Certification as a Novell Engineer (CNE). This led to a number of roles in private sector Corporations including CBRE, Roche Pharmaceuticals (where he joined the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning project) and Digital Equipment Corporation, moving from there to IBM, following the acquisition of DEC by Compaq, in 1999.

It was during his 18 year career in IBM that Martin fully transitioned to Business Transformation and Project Management leading SAP and other business technology implementations worldwide whist progressing through the PM certification process, reaching IBM Executive PM Level.
