Martin Nadin OBE
Housing charity Scottish Veterans Residences (SVR) has appointed Martin Nadin OBE as its new chief executive. He takes over from Phil Cox who is retiring after five years in the role. After initially training as an army biomedical scientist in 1977, Martin later graduated into the Royal Army Medical Corps from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 1989. He then served in the Middle East, Africa, Northern Ireland, the Balkans and Afghanistan. In that time he was responsible for the planning, delivery and governance of worldwide healthcare support for deployed military personnel and their families. In 2016, Martin became project director for one of the largest NHS foundation trusts in the UK.

He has spent the past four years at RCET – Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity - where he secured almost £400k as the charity’s first ever fundraiser. Matthew is a member of the Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel as well as chair of the Board of Trustees at The Joshua Nolan Foundation, a charity raising funds to provide specialist, private counselling for people at risk of suicide.
