Martin Hewitt started his first post graduate career as a Commissioned Officer in the British Parachute Regiment. During this period of his life Martin lead Paratroopers in conflict torn Afghanistan. In 2007 Martin lost the use of his right arm leading an attack in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Whilst he was recovering from life threatening injuries, Martin used Alpine skiing as a focus and helped establish and Captained a new adaptive ski team for injured British servicemen. This focus resulted in Martin representing Great Britain in Adaptive Ski Racing on the international stage. Post professional skiing, Martin began leading teams of adaptive athletes on multiple bold expeditionary challenges through the Adaptive Grand Slam project and co-founded Fieri Leadership. Martin is a Trustee of the Endangered Species Protection Agency, an ambassador for BLESMA (British Limbless Ex Service men’s Association) and Supporting Wounded Veterans.
