Martin Valenti, Board Member
With over 30 years’ experience in a variety of senior management roles, I have developed significant experience in environmental, economic and regulatory policy including project managing major projects and initiatives. I have successfully delivered high profile projects for the Scottish Government on environmental noise, contaminated land and climate change. More recently, I served a four-year secondment as Project Director for Scotland's 2020 Climate Group and played an instrumental role in setting the group up. I have extensive experience working with the highest levels of government and developing high level political and industry focused network contacts, allowing the capturing of key decision makers to help bring about strategic beneficial outcomes. I head up strategic initiatives for SEPA and serve as Vice Chair for Scotland's 2020 Climate Group. I am a trusted adviser who builds credibility quickly, excels in creating consensus among divergent groups, and communicates at all levels to manage sensitive issues and negotiate successful outcomes.
