Martin Taylor is one of the co-founders of the Redwood Technologies Group, responsible for strategic market development and the company’s public sector practice. A leading innovator in customer engagement solutions, Martin is a regular speaker at international conferences and in the media. He is an elected member of the CBI South-East Council, a member of the National Health Service England Digital and Urgent Care Strategy Board and a judge at the Soldiering on Through Life Trust. Martin also guest lectures for the Peter Jones Enterprise Foundation, which trains disadvantaged young people in setting up and running their own businesses.
After graduating from King’s College, University of London, with a BSc (Hons) in Business Management, Martin worked as a futures market analyst in Asia. He returned to the UK to help launch Redwood Technologies in 1993, developing new overseas territories – particularly emerging markets – and adapting Redwood’s powerful and unique core technology for new sectors. As a key King’s College Alumnus, Martin is also a member of the Advisory Board at King’s College London Business School, where he is a regular guest lecturer on strategy.
A pioneer in real-time billing, Martin’s early work with deregulated telecommunications operators led directly to the multi-tenanted, multi-level, multimedia accounting platform that underpins the group’s cloud service offering. Martin also devised a number of important interactive media and payment applications that are today commonplace around the world.
In his spare time Martin is a keen runner, having once been the Berkshire cross country champion and competing, along with Sean, in the English Schools Cross Country Championships.
