Meet the team – Martin Porthouse

Martin is a Director of Exchange Street, specifically accountable for Loss Adjusting / Claims but also responsible for the general development of the business, incorporating other divisions and group companies.

Martin commenced his recruitment career in 2005 working for a global firm, successfully setting up and developing their Loss Adjusting & Claims division from a standing start.

Prior to entering recruitment (1998-2004), Martin was a Director and Shareholder in a well-known ‘Insurance Replacement’ company, successfully servicing national Insurer and Loss Adjusting clients in respect of replacement goods for household claims. Before this, he worked as a General Property Adjuster (1990-1998) in the North West, handling both domestic and commercial property losses. He worked for McLarens Toplis, Garsides, Davies & Co and Miller Knight / Miller Fisher.

Martin has always been a sportsman and continued to play to a high standard with Timperley Cricket Club in the Cheshire League until very recently, when age caught up with him! He can now be seen turning out for their 3rd and occasionally, 2nd teams. He is a Manchester United season ticket holder yet used to play for Manchester City as a schoolboy.

One other little known fact; way back when, Martin was a prominent DJ on the Manchester house scene. His talents know no bounds!
