Mr. Martin is a life-long entrepreneur. Since launching Innovest in 2017, he has turned it into a publicly traded diversified Industrial company that is expected to generate nearly $50 million in gross sales in 2019 and employs over 100 through two segments. He acquired and compressed six companies, turning a company that was worth just $300,000 in 2017 into a company worth over 100 times that amount to start 2019, and debt free at that time. With both successes and failures under his belt, he credits his business tenacity to growing up in his father’s drugstore which required managing very low margins and critically important services, and in conditioning himself to focus on the most important things even when things are chaotic. Mr. Martin has a Bachelors of Science of Business Administration in Finance from John Carroll University.
