Best advice to give or received: It's amazing what can be accomplished when nobody cares who gets the credit.

Interesting fact: I'm all in on "A Song of Ice and Fire"/"Game of Thrones"

Important lesson I've learned: Treat people the way you want to be treated

To relax, I: Spend time with my wife, Emily, and our two kids.

From the nominators: "When Martin volunteers his time and talents, he doesn't do it for recognition. His sole reward is helping someone less fortunate, making a difference for a neighbor in need." - Erin Myers, Assistant vice president and assistant sales manager, Busey

"Since people are drawn to his positive demeanor, Martin develops lasting relationships. As a relationship builder, Martin is a great listener - offering positive feedback to facilitate the communication process - and is accepting of others, acknowledging uniqueness and building upon strengths." - Christa Dubson, Assistant vice-president, corporate communications director
