Meet the Team – Martin


Martin joined the Balloon Market team just over a year ago and whilst we think we know him pretty well, a few ‘Meet the Team’ questions has turned up some surprising answers!

We hope this fun blog gives you a little insight into the person behind the signature on many of your packing slips and at the bottom of emails. Perhaps next time you speak to Martin on the ‘phone, you could ask him more about his favourite past-time or maybe his claim to fame?! We’ll certainly be asking him to perform his party trick this Christmas!
