Martin Warren
Martin Warren, Founder of M P Warren & Associates
Tel. 01626 853500
Martin was the youngest of 4 sons, their Father, a Reverend and their Mother, a Scout Leader. Martin was born and raised in a small Devon village where he loved living with his family.
He enjoyed a successful and distinguished financial career that started over 30 years ago. His charming and charismatic manner, combined with his excellent expertise in financial advice ensured him many loyal clients, which in turn, became lifelong friends too.
In 1982, Martin began M P Warren & Associates in Chudleigh, his practice grew over the years and now consists of a team of advisers and administration staff who look after clients throughout the UK, managing millions of pounds of client's assets.
Martin was a true family man and liked nothing more than spending time with his loved ones. Martin married his wife Linda when they were 18 years old, where they went on to have two daughters together Gemma and Carley, and four Grandchildren.
Martin was known by his family and friends by many names, such as Bim, Bimbop and Dandad. His love of practical jokes and a competitive streak that showed itself "occasionally" even when playing games with his grandchildren and being determined to beat them!
Running a successful business comes from spending many long hours at the office. His 'work family' was also a very big part of his life and Martin had an innate ability to make all of his staff feel truly valued and appreciated. He believed it was an essential part of everyday working life to provide a workplace that was full of energy, fun, encouragement and happiness. From racing days, inflatable assault courses, summer parties, Christmas dinners or just going for breakfast on someone's birthday, Martin enjoyed spending time with his team and rewarding them for their hard work. He was one of the very few bosses that truly earned the title ‘a great boss'.
Martin will be greatly missed by all his colleagues, clients and the many people in the industry who met him. He will always be remembered not just for his excellent financial and business acumen but also his energy, drive and his sense of humour.
