VP, Principal Analyst serving eBusiness & Channel Strategy PROFESSIONALS

Martin serves eBusiness & Channel Strategy Professionals. He leads the development of Forrester's Agile commerce playbook, which focuses on how consumer adoption of multiple touchpoints is driving the need for firms to abandon channel-siloed strategies to become both more customer-centric and more agile in how they embrace change. Martin covers digital and eBusiness maturity and how firms can adopt organizational structures, processes, sourcing strategies, and metrics that help them embed digital tools and capabilities throughout their organizations. He is based in the UK, and while covering global trends, he has a particular focus on the European retail market.

Prior to that, he worked in a variety of roles at Egg.com, Europe's largest pure-play digital bank, ranging from mergers and acquisitions to new product development for both Egg and PruDirect.
