Board of Directors
Chairman of the Board
Richard J. Martin served as CEO of SMARTLogix, Inc., a petroleum logistics technology company which he founded in 2000. With Martin at the helm for 15 years, SMARTLogix was positioned as the dominant player in the market and was acquired by a private equity firm in 2015. Graduating with an Engineering degree from The University of Buffalo's School of Engineering, Martin was immediately recruited by Exxon to join their Management Development Program where he quickly rose through the ranks. Following a considerable tenure at Exxon, he leaped into entrepreneurship by purchasing a small Exxon distributorship in the Carolinas. As a result of his capable management, Culp Petroleum was transformed into a large southeast regional distribution company. While at Culp, Martin developed and implemented several disruptive technologies that have since become industry standards. Martin sold the petroleum business in 2005 and focused his efforts on his technology ventures including the SMARTank division of SMARTLogix. SMARTank grew substantially and the technology was later sold to a public company in 2011. A proven leader in building companies and incorporating innovations, as well as a current member of several boards driving technology and growth, Martin will prove instrumental in guiding Cleartronic's future.
