Andy Martin appointed as NZF CEO

Martin, who as CEO of London Irish Rugby Club recently oversaw a two year project that led to the successful buy out of the club by a consortium of Irish businessmen, has now come back full circle to football – his first love.
“I am excited by the many opportunities and challenges facing New Zealand Football at the moment,” Martin said.
“We are at a potentially transformational point in its history.”
It was football which influenced his decision to enter the world of banking; as a passionate junior footballer (and fan of Liverpool FC), Barclay’s bank recruited him as a sixteen year old.
Since then he has held a number of senior roles within the Bank most recently as a Board Member and Managing Director in the Corporate Bank.
“I am very much looking forward to the coming period of change,” he says.
Andy has an MBA from Henley Business School, UK, and is married to Catherine and has two children.
He will be taking up the new role in February.
