Dan Martin, Managing Director, EMEA

Dan took the helm at Broadbean in September 2010. His previous jobs as Digital Business Development Director for DMGT, and his work with the various digital businesses in the portfolio, primed him well for his role at the Bean.

Career opportunities can come along unexpectedly and Dan would say that the timing of this particular opportunity was perfect. An exciting prospect with a business he knew well - just two of the motivations behind his decision to join the Bean team.

Dan believes strongly in maintaining a healthy work-life balance, and occasionally manages to achieve it. Golf is his biggest weakness, both in terms of his obsessive focus and lack of talent, but he is also interested in a wide variety of other sports. Increasingly, watching is becoming more common than playing, but he still hasn't given up hope that he will receive the call to don the red of Liverpool FC (but don't hold that against him!).
