Delcam’s Chief Executive, Clive Martell, was named CEO of the Year at the Grant Thornton Quoted Company Awards at a ceremony at the Natural History Museum on January 30.
The Award recognised Clive “for having driven profitable growth through his experience and business acumen”. It came the day after Birmingham-based Delcam had issued a trading update announcing that revenue from sales of the company’s CADCAM software and related services for 2012 is expected to be at least £47 million. This would be a record for Delcam and an increase of more than 10% over the previous record revenue achieved in 2011.
Commenting on the Award, Clive said, “I am obviously delighted to be named CEO of the Year, even though I feel it is a tribute to Delcam’s excellent results as much as to my personal achievements. I would like to thank all of the staff at Delcam for their contribution to our success and, therefore, to me receiving this Award.”
Clive first joined Delcam in 1982, when it was a division of the Delta Metals Group. He was appointed Marketing Director in 1994 and was responsible for strengthening the marketing team. He became Managing Director of the UK Division in 1996 and was made responsible for Delcam’s European Subsidiaries in 2001. In April 2008, Clive was made Group Operations Director before becoming Chief Executive in August 2009.
Clive is a Chartered Engineer with a Bachelors degree in Production Engineering and a Masters degree in Machine Tool and Manufacturing Technology from the University of Birmingham.
