Martin joined the team at Pathways in 2008 as Director and co-owner, and with Richard has played a key role in the company’s growth to become one of the largest and most reputed specialist immigration companies in New Zealand. Martin specialises in employment related immigration and in managing Pathways’ portfolio of corporate relationships.

Martin is originally from the United Kingdom where he held senior management positions with a publicly listed recruitment business before immigrating to New Zealand in 2006. In April 2020, Martin also joined the senior management team at specialist medical recruitment company NZDr (New Zealand Doctor recruitment). Through his work as an immigration adviser Martin has represented many doctors and their families with their New Zealand immigration requirements and he can now combine this immigration experience and his extensive recruitment experience, along with his own personal migration journey, to continue supporting doctors on their journey to live and work in New Zealand.

Martin is married to a Kiwi, they met in London and lived there for 12 years before moving to New Zealand with their two children in 2006. Initially basing themselves in Hamilton, they relocated to Wellington in 2016. Ballet plays a big part of the King family life with both children in full time training; this tends to dictate the family holidays so they can attend training workshops around the world. When he has a rare quiet moment, Martin does enjoy the benefit of Wellington being at the heart of the New Zealand craft beer industry. His favourite beer being the very appropriately named Hops en Pointe from Garage Project, made for the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
