Behind every successful business is a dedicated team growing under the banner of good leadership skills. Firm support, relationship building, and setting expectations are the cornerstones of any good leader. Chris Martin has garnered the skills to accomplish this feat because he believes in the power of team building and encourages his team members to learn and grow as much as possible. “Great teams make a great business,” shares Martin.
Through the private equity company, GlenMartin, Chris seeks to build and develop world-class businesses and real estate investment strategies. GlenMartin employs financial experts in various fields, including real estate. The idea of creating a platform that adds value to the entrepreneurial leadership of a company is the force that powers it. Very few business owners can track or understand these important metrics that drive their business. With this facility, Chris provides growth opportunities through organic and acquisition strategies. It is a platform company that truly understands cost accounting and builds companies that understand the difference between opportunity and marginal costs.
According to Chris, private equity must support optimizing and tracking important business metrics rather than just bringing equity and debt capital to the business. Board-level strategy, and financial and legal advisory should support entrepreneurship and ensure optimized success for long-term growth in business valuation.
Chris has enjoyed the opportunity to support the growth of several highly successful companies in various sectors. His contribution to the development of telecommunication infrastructure is a very small facet of his career background. While he enjoyed enormous domestic and international success in developing asset portfolios, his greatest joy has come from building organizations and corporate structures that unify a company.
It’s fascinating how telecommunications has played a role in uniting organizations across borders and continents. Likewise, these advancements in communications have generated challenges within organizations never realized in past times. Chris believes a new chapter will be written as we adapt to work environments and strategies that optimize workflow and processes due to telecommunication improvements.
GlenMartin has been a front-runner in developing and inventing improved telecommunication infrastructure for more than 30 years. It has spun off more than 5 business units over the years and developed enormous infrastructure assets across the globe. Chris hopes that through GlenMartin, we can continue to improve infrastructure, expand business enterprise and assist people either directly or indirectly in having a better quality of life.
