Nohl Martin: Founder

Energetic thinking, nuanced connecting and visionary leadership combine with her lifelong interest in global affairs to create winning strengths.

Nohl Martin's experience in international business, entrepreneurship, the Middle East and public health coalesce in leading clients to successful global business ventures. She brings both a studied and instinctual understanding and approach to best practices in the Arab Gulf along with strong relationship capital in advising and launching companies into the region.

Through her work bridging the Middle East with North America and Europe, the most astute institutions and individuals in the world now have access to opportunities before they enter the global private equity market where auctions can inflate valuations. Her work in the venture community includes evaluating companies for investment forums, scouting opportunities and creating strategic partnerships.

Ms. Martin brings an entrepreneurial spirit to her work. She is the founder of three companies, profitably selling her first one in 1995. Originally from La Jolla, Ca and now living in Kirkland, Washington, she brings pioneering ideas, due diligence, discipline, creativity and integrity to her work to ensure a multi-dimensional roll-out for core audience adoption.

Following Oberlin College with degrees in Religion (Islam) and Developing Nations, Ms. Martin received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship (IBM). She focused on health care and HIV in Africa, utilizing limited resources and maximizing strengths to respond to complex, challenging issues. Her leadership, innovation and entrepreneurial talents combine with teamwork, enthusiasm, creativity and an ability to market new ideas and ventures to fruition.

Ms. Martin serves on national advisory boards, is a featured speaker, and spearheads collaborative conferences. Her work has appeared in local and international press including a new book, How To Make The Rest Of Your Life, The Best Of Your Life, which also republishes one of Ms. Martin's articles. She is a founding board member of the GCC Women initiative. Her interest in international affairs is evident in her years on the staff of a U.S. Senator, overseas travel, expatriate living, her studies, and her own international family, including her daughter who is a true blend of the East and West.

She is conversant in Spanish. Her work and travels have taken her to the Middle East, Asia, South and Central America, Africa and Europe.
