Martin's 40 Under 40 Achievement


Our CEO Martin Ellis has made it into 2021's '40 Under 40' list.

Here at Pulse-Eight, we’re constantly seeking and sourcing the best talent in the industry. That’s why when our very own CEO, Martin Ellis joined Innavate’s 40 under 40 Class of 2021 we were extremely proud. .

With 12 years industry experience in which he built Pulse-Eight, Martin ‘s record of achievement and dedication to the AV industry is impressive. 

Business Development Director, Jonathan Regalado-Hawkey notes “Since joining Pulse-Eight in 2019, I have had the privilege of witnessing Martin’s passion for product design, new concepts and ideas first-hand, whilst encouraging our teams with creating the next generation of AV distribution products that “just work”. He continues to work with industry leaders and take an active role in technology standards, such as HDBaseT Alliance AV Working Group. In the last few years, he has demonstrated an incredible resilience in handling the challenges posed by the pandemic and global supply constraints whilst keeping a positive outlook”.

Martin Ellis


Martin founded Pulse-Eight back in 2010, working from a start-up engineering lab in his home. Fast forward 12 years, Martin now heads up a global team of 75+ employees. 

After a long day of running around the office and factory, Martin loves nothing more than sitting down with a bottle of coke and building his beloved Lego. His collection, much like Pulse-Eight, has grown rapidly (if you’ve ever visited our Poole office then you’ll know what we mean).
