Under Martin’s leadership, Impington-based CMR Surgical has developed the revolutionary Versius robot for minimal access surgery, which will aid recovery times and lead to long-term savings in healthcare.

Judges commended him for “building his product and proving his idea”, which has disupted the surgical robotics market - currently led by a company producing a much larger and more expensive machine.

Pointing to the challenges ahead, they added: “Martin will need to prove he can commercialise his product and can scale at the rate needed.”

Stuart Wilkinson, EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year Lead in the East, said: “Martin’s story is truly inspirational – he has confidently disrupted the market with innovative technology he built himself. CMR Surgical is a company to watch as their technology has the potential to revolutionise surgery procedures for many patients.”

Martin won CEO of the Year at the 2018 Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards.
