Martin Crawford

After taking up the position as CEO of Offshore Incorporations Limited (OIL) in 2009, Martin led the successful sale of the business in 2011 to the PE owners of Vistra. Following the merger, and adoption of Vistra as the combined brand, Martin was the Group CEO until June 2018. In that time, Vistra expanded from five to 46 jurisdictions, with a commensurate increase in revenues and employees. In June 2018 Martin transitioned to the role of Non-Executive Director on the company’s Board.

Prior to Vistra, Martin spent over 15 years leading medium and large companies across the Asia-Pacific region in offshore financial services, foreign exchange and asset management, with a particular emphasis on PE-owned portfolio companies. Martin spent his early career in Australia in a number of sales and marketing roles before moving to Europe to further his academic studies. He worked with strategy consulting firm Bain & Company in London before relocating back to Australia where he spent seven years managing the institutional funds management division at MLC, one of the largest fund managers in Australasia. Prior to his move to Asia, he was Regional Managing Director (Asia-Pacific) for Travelex PLC, the world's largest non-bank foreign exchange specialist.

Martin holds an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of South Australia, and a MBA from IMD in Switzerland.
