Rich Martin is the Founder of Directives Online and former VP of Business Development for Directive Communication Systems (DCS) which created a digital asset inventory tool for the estate planning market.
Rich is a seasoned executive in the technology, healthcare space with a proven track record of boosting profits and market share for his clients. On the tech side he helped rollout dedicated Internet access in New England and participated in the “Cloud” business when it was first being designed and built. His career in the tech space in combination with healthcare experience proved to be the perfect background to become the Founder of Directives Online.
An avid mountaineer and explorer, Rich has climbed 2 of the 7 summits and participated in a North Pole Expedition. His hobby has required him to help prepare for emergencies on the mountain and off by putting advance directives and estate documents in a readily accessible and secure online depository.
Closer to home, Rich has seen how confusing estate situations get while caring for terminally ill loved ones whose estate documents are in disarray. These experiences have inspired Rich to create Directives Online, to which he brings the same passion and dedicated preparedness that has characterized his adventures all over the globe.
