Who Are We
Colin Marriott - Chairman
Colin's career began with a sales grounding in the packaging industry. He worked for a fitness equipment manufacturer and it was from there that he spotted a gap in the market for a nationwide independent service provider in the commercial fitness equipment sector. Founding ServiceSport in 1999, Colin has grown the business into one with a nationwide reputation of high quality of service.
A keen follower of football at all levels, Colin is a lifelong Manchester City fan and supporter of our local teams in the North West Counties league. Colin also enjoys playing in a local 5-a-side league to maintain his level of fitness. Colin’s passion for the game led to ServiceSport becoming an official sponsor of Bury Football Club in 2013.
Colin isn't a natural born athlete, but loves to compete in as many charity fundraisers as he can. From triathlons, to 3 peak challenges and 10k runs, Colin loves to get involved in all sorts of charitable sport and fitness.
