Meet your Power List: Paul Martin

Paul Martin crop

As one of the Directors of iFour Hospitality Design, Paul Martin ensures the service the firm offers to customers is upheld to the highest standards.

Paul founded iFour 18-months ago along with Lee Swiffen, who is also a Director of the business. Together they wanted the company to be a nationally-focused hospitality design house, committed to working in a custom, niche market, providing services for start-up and well established national accounts.

Working closely with branding agencies, designers and architects, iFour has already secured a reputation as one of the market leaders in the production of high-end cocktail bars and restaurants.

This past year, iFour has been involved in numerous customer-focused projects, including London west end entertainment venues with multiple bars and kitchens to small high-end restaurant projects with suited cooking solutions, wine walls and cocktail bars.

Paul has had a great year building up the business, and it looks like there is much more to come. The firm is currently developing kitchens for two Michelin-starred chefs, chain food outlets and high end bar groups which will involve extremely custom and bespoke designs to suit their needs.

Paul entered the industry in the early 2000s, cutting his teeth as a rep in a big design house, and began to notice that customers don’t always want an off-the-shelf solution. As one of the innovators behind iFour, he has carved a niche in the cocktail bar and restaurant market, and the company now expects 50% growth year on year.

He aims to provide a service that he and his clients can be excited about, especially as many of them are small businesses investing a lot of capital into creating high end finishes.
