Martin Long (born 26 August 1950) is a businessman and founder of the Churchill Insurance Company.
Long began his career working in a number of insurance companies. He went on to become managing director of Halifax Insurance.
Together with Peter Wood, he founded Direct Line in 1985, the first telephone-only insurance company in the UK. Four years later Long broke away to form Churchill, a company he would manage himself until its purchase by the Royal Bank of Scotland in 2003, a deal that is said to have earned Long £50 million. He retained his job of running Churchill until 2004, when he left to set up his own property company.
