Meet Rod Martin

 

Rod D. Martin, founder and CEO of The Martin Organization, is a technology entrepreneur, futurist, hedge fund manager, author and conservative activist from Destin, Florida.  Fox Business News calls him a “tech guru”, Britain’s Guardian has labeled him a “philosopher-capitalist”, Gawker describes him as “another of Peter Thiel’s brilliant nonconformists,” and George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management introduced him as “America’s foremost [conservative] expert on online politics.”

“Rod is one of our nation’s leading minds.  He possesses a more complete understanding of America than most executives have of their own businesses.  He’s smart, original, and very committed — a combination that one rarely finds.”

Peter Thiel

Founder of PayPal, 'America's leading public intellectual.' - Fortune

Rod is a mentor, a wise counselor, a brilliant strategist, a visionary, and a builder. He is one of a precious few souls the world could use far more of.
