Congratulations go to our CEO, Martin Rigley who has been recognised for his services to Business & Innovation in the New Year’s honours list.

Martin has tirelessly volunteered for many years to increase access & interest of students to STEM careers. Martin, began his career as an apprentice electrical engineer with British Coal before joining Lindhurst in 1994. A chartered engineer, Martin has a keen interest in promoting British engineering excellence & steering the agenda for developing technical skills. “I am passionate about getting young people interested in the exciting opportunities a career in science, engineering & manufacturing presents. I was very fortunate that someone inspired me & gave me the opportunity to work in this sector – so when I have the opportunity inspire the next generation, I seize it.

Martin sits on many boards to support the STEM sectors & the skills agenda. Martin works closely with both universities in Nottingham, the LEP’s, chambers of commerce & is a governor at West Nottinghamshire Vision College.


“I have a strong belief in the untapped potential of the myriad of STEM based SME’s both locally and nationally, whenever I get chance to share our experience as to how we use innovation to drive our business forward I do so. This has resulted in me making numerous presentations at both TRADE body, University & school level as well as being a board member on sector support groups, trade bodies, skills groups, school governor and at LEP level.”
