Martin Kahan

As president and founder, Martin is the driving force behind MK Global Trade Inc. Martin has almost 40 years of business experience, 18 of them in the barter industry. In the late 80’s and early 90’s Martin began to understand barter by opening up the the Ukrainian Cattle Hide Market into the European market. Many of the deals were done in trade.

Since starting MK Global Trade in May 2007, Martin and his staff have worked diligently to build Manitoba’s largest Barter Exchange. “For me, MK Global is a dream come true. My greatest thrill is seeing the hundreds of deals we work on daily come together.”
