“Looking to the future.
Giving back to the community.”
He continued his education by taking the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants in-depth tax course which is recognized as the most comprehensive tax training available in Canada.
Martin started as a co-op student at Millards in 1975 and became a partner in 1982, rising to the level of the firm’s senior partner in 2012. He has built up substantial expertise in tax and estate planning, family trusts, taxation on death, purchase and sale of businesses, litigation support and professional corporations for the medical, dental and legal professions. Within the firm, he played a leadership role in the construction of the firm’s landmark downtown building. He also has mentored and trained various current and future partners of the firm, since he realizes they represent the firm’s future.
Martin is a former competitive distance runner who was nationally ranked in the marathon and still stays in shape by getting out for a run daily on Brantford’s excellent trail system. He and his wife, Lorie, enjoy spending time at the family cottage in the summer and ski at Holimont in Ellicottville in the winter.
Martin is a former board member and treasurer of the Brantford YM-YWCA and continues to believe in giving back to the community.
