Tom Martin - President

With a career in advertising spanning four decades, I established Martin Communications, Inc., in 1993 to provide clients with marketing, advertising and media strategy/buying services based on a simple premise of faster, better and more cost effective than competitors. The spare bedroom, three-legged kitchen table headquarters launched a business whose on-going success with an ever-increasing staff is the result of long-standing, valued relationships with both clients and those who provide us with subcontracted services.
