Paul P. Martin
Founder & President
Paul founded Martin & Company in 1993 and currently oversees the day-to-day operations of all business segments of the company. Paul started his insurance career as a retail agent in 1990 and quickly recognized the lack of competitive information in the market. With just a few years of insurance background, Paul decided to form his own company and launch a series of newsletters and reference guides that would change the way insurance professionals obtained reliable and competitive industry information. With the success of his newsletters, the launch of FilingsDirect.com, and subscribers countrywide, Paul decided to turn Martin & Company into a full-service professional consulting firm. His goal was to build a boutique-like firm that was customer-centric and offered a complement of professional services that would reshape the outsourcing model. Today, Martin & Company has 45 employees and is recognized as an industry-leading consulting, advisory, and data solutions firm. The company’s growth is attributed to an exceptional and talented staff, technology initiatives, and a leadership team with vision. Paul is a member of various industry associations, and an occasional industry presenter and was recently appointed Board Member of the Targets Markets Program Administrators Association (TMPAA).
Paul wishes to thank the many friends and associates that have helped his company become such a well-respected and highly regarded consulting and advisory firm in the industry. Paul resides in Newtown Square, PA with his amazing wife Colleen and has three equally amazing daughters. He enjoys golfing, skiing, and cycling, and his company actively supports various charitable organizations.
