Rod D. Martin is a technology entrepreneur, futurist, hedge fund manager, thought leader and activist from Destin, Florida. Fox Business News calls him a “tech guru,” Britain’s Guardian has labeled him a “philosopher-capitalist,” while Gawker has described him as a “brilliant nonconformist.”
Rod was part of PayPal’s pre-IPO startup team, serving as special counsel to founder and CEO Peter Thiel, and also served as policy director to former Governor Mike Huckabee. He is Founder and CEO of The Martin Organization, whose portfolio of companies includes Galectin Therapeutics (NASDAQ:GALT), Global PET Imaging, Advanced Search Laboratories, Agincourt Ventures and the 10 X Fund. His charitable and church work is central to all he does, and he further engages our culture as Advisory Board Chairman for the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA, where he is also a three-term past President), as a widely sought-after speaker, and as author of such books as his forthcoming The Imperative of Excellence.
